1-year Traineeship

The RYTC Trainees programme is a one year industry training course, for adults 18+. From the beginning of the traineeship (September) the trainees will be booked 'professionally' into any paid work on offer that match their existing skills (and help those skills to grow). Also all trainees will start with and be encouraged to explore key areas of interest. Each term will have a focus for learning and development. 


Autumn term will be the development of acting skills for those trainees who want to go to drama school the following year. This includes working on monologues and preparing for filming show reels. 

Spring term the focus will be project planning and development. This is particularly for those  who want to run their own shows, aspire to head of department or management or perhaps want to run their own company in the future. 

Sessions will include 

- project planning

- budgeting

- funding and sponsorship (sources and language to use)

- marketing (including e-marketing using Mailchimp as a sample tool)

- working in partnership

Summer term will focus on any other areas that the trainees would like to cover in the gap year with the RYTC. Further practical acting work can be included in this phase.
