Deadline to apply: Fri 14 May

If social distancing rules are relaxed, we hope to run some of the workshops in person at a venue in Lambeth.

‘This was such a great programme that has made me stop and think about my career and which direction I want to head into’  

As well as developing the skills employers are looking for and learning how to bring these to an interview, you’ll work alongside a supportive network of Front Liners and mentors to help you along the way – you’ll also become part of the wider Old Vic Alumni Network to continue to access ticket offers and additional learning, development and job opportunities. 

‘I have made new friends, worked with incredible practitioners and laughed so much’ 

The series is made up of six digital workshops and mentoring sessions which cover:  

  • Goal setting – how to set goals and stick to them
  • Taking control of next steps – how to plan and adapt in uncertain times, and be kind to yourself
  • Building practical tools on how to present yourself – elevator pitches, interview skills, CV and cover letter writing
  • Building a peer network and connections
‘I know that the skills I have learnt can take me anywhere I want to go’
