Work Experience

PLACEMENTS FOR SCHOOL PUPILS

We are not currently taking any further application for work experience for the rest of this year. Please check back in January 2018 about placements available during the academic year 2018-19

We offer placements for school pupils (usually S4) at various times throughout the year.

Pupils wishing to apply for work placement should send us a completed application form, expressing their interest in working with The Lyceum. We then select the weeks that we can offer a meaningful placement and, if necessary, ask the pupils to come in and speak to us. Due to the large number of applications we receive, we will only contact applicants who are selected for an interview. Please allow 2 weeks to be contacted. 

We have found this process ensures we give opportunities to those who will respond best to them and gives pupils an experience as close as possible to that of applying for a job. Work experience is based within the Creative Learning Team, an engaging and varied environment.

A placement may involve:

We also take a tour of the theatre, rehearsal studios, admin offices, workshop and wardrobe departments and offer a chance to attend a performance of the current production. 

This is a very special opportunity for pupils with a keen interest in theatre and drama and every one of our placement pupils has gained a real insight into theatre as a result of their placement.

PLACEMENTS FOR UNIVERSITY OR COLLEGE STUDENTS

Occasionally we are able to offer placements for university or college students.
Students wishing to apply for work need to submit a CV and a cover letter explaining why you wish to undergo a work placement at The Lyceum. Please specify which department you are interested in working with in your application.

Due to the large number of applications we receive, we will only contact applicants who are selected for an interview. Please allow 2 weeks to be contacted.
