Assistant & Apprenticeships

Assistants and Apprentices are paid roles. They may facilitate drama sessions with younger students, support full productions in a technical/production role, or assistant-produce the Doorstep Theatre Festival. In order to serve as a Doorstep assistant or apprentice, you need to have completed either work experience or a voluntary internship first.

Apprenticeships are for young people aged 15-16 who have completed previous volunteering for Doorstep. Assistants are paid positions for older young people (aged 16+) who want to work professionally in the arts. Once a young person has worked as an assistant for Doorstep, we can provide further Foot in the Door mentorship, training and support for you to move to Associate Artist status, and if appropriate, eventually to Lead Artist.
