Our emphasis is on creative engagement and sparking the imagination, whilst developing theatre making and performance skills, both onstage and off. Our young people are an important part of the development of the company through a youth committee and our young directors programme.
We are dedicated to reaching and providing for children who have little access to the arts by offering free and assisted places, we regularly apply for funding so we are able to offer education projects to schools who are in an area of deprivation. We have also created an environment where children who have any additional needs are able to access all our programmes.
Much of our work is focused around positive mental health and this will continue to be reflected in all our work going forward.
This is a challenging and exciting time to join our team, we are in the process of developing and changing at a fast pace to ensure we meet the needs of all young people.
There may be an element of flexibility to the role and as we continue to recover from the pandemic, there may also be the opportunity to increase the role in terms of hours and responsibility going forward.
