Apprentice Scheme

The Stage One Apprentice Scheme offers unique hands-on training and development opportunities within established producing companies for outstanding entrepreneurial individuals.

We believe that being within a dynamic and successful company is the most important experience emerging producers need in order to hone their skills, and in the past have placed apprentices in companies such as Sonia Friedman Productions, Headlong, Playful Productions and Ambassador Theatre Group.

In 2015, we will be funding 6 commercial apprenticeships, 2 commercial/subsidised apprenticeships and 2 Regional apprenticeships. Each role requires the candidates to have at least 1-2 years’ experience as a (fringe/small scale) producer and be able to demonstrate a dedication to a career as an independent commercial theatre producer.

Applications are now closed but keep checking the website and sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date with Stage One news! If your organisation is interested in hosting and training an apprentice producer, please contact or call 0207 557 6737.

The Apprentice Scheme is supported by The Society of London Theatre, The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, The Agency, The Garrick Trust, David Dein and Andrew Treagus Associates.
