Technical Theatre Apprenticeships - Sadler's Wells and The Roundho


Recommended Posts

The Roundhouse and Sadler's Wells have teamed up to offer two Apprenticeships in Technical Theatre. These roles are offered as part of the Creative Employment Programme – a national programme funded by Arts Council England and managed by Creative and Cultural Skills.

 

Theatre Technicians provide a wide range of skills, in areas including sound, lighting and stage, and play a vital role in performances of all kinds. These Apprenticeships are aimed at anyone who wants to be a part of backstage operations in the technical theatre industry.

 

The Apprentices will share their time equally across the two venues gaining experience in Technical Theatre: Sound, Light & Stage and complete a Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship including Maths, English & ICT Functional Skills if required.

 

To be eligible for these Creative Employment Programme funded Technical Theatre Apprenticeships you must be aged 18 to 24, currently unemployed and able to commit to working 30 hours per week for 12 months.

 

The successful candidates will work with young people on a regular basis at the Roundhouse and so will be offered positions subject to an enhanced criminal record check from the Disclosure & Barring Service.

 

Pay is £6.31 per hour plus benefits (benefit packages vary slightly, please contact The Roundhouse and Sadler's Wells directly for details)

 

Closing date for completed applications through the National Apprenticeship website is 9.00am on Wednesday 22 January 2014.

Suitably qualified disabled candidates are guaranteed an interview.

 

Not wanting to sound likeim against equality, but why does being disabled guarantee an interview? and even if that is the case it seems very odd to actually put it into the ad...

Some employers (including Saddlers Wells it seems) are committed to the "Positive to Disabled People: Two Ticks" scheme. One of the criteria for advertising a job under that scheme is to guarantee all disabled applicants an interview. So whilst the cynic in me agrees that is sort of not equality at all, it's clearly one of those political things you have to play along to or not play at all.

I have a hunch that without a policy like this, it would be too easy for anyone with a disability to be taken out of the running at the "first sift" of applications. And for disabled people who are perhaps used to getting similar knockbacks, a guarantee like this may well encourage them to apply when otherwise they wouldn't bother.
