Making Theatre: Gaining Skills
A course to develop creative skills and improve work prospects.
The course will allow the young people to work as a team on a real theatre production, learning technical and production skills such as construction, lighting, graphic design and event management.
It has been designed to be particularly valuable to young people with moderate learning difficulties such as Asperger’s Syndrome, Dyslexia and ADHD.
Learners that complete the course successfully will achieve a Bronze Arts Award and a BTEC Level 1 Award in Supporting Employability and Personal Effectiveness.
Local employers including Portsmouth Football Club and The Graphic Design House will provide valuable advice and guidance.
The course will run from Monday 7 January until Friday 1 February, with the first 2 weeks at the New Theatre Royal and the second half of the course at Catch 22 in Fratton. The programme is fully funded and free of charge to young people aged 16-18 not currently in full-time learning.
