Further Education (16+)

Opportunities and workshops for 16-18 year olds


Our further education opportunities are designed to inspire and challenge students aged 16-18 to delve deeper into our productions and to discover more about careers in Theatre. During the 2021 summer term these opportunities will be available online or in-person, please email our Education Projects Manager, Richard Knowles at leap@cft.org.uk to discuss in more detail. 

Our Insight Workshops explore the production process for key shows in our season and we have digital resources available for selected productions to support learning in school or college. 

Our Prologue scheme for 16-30 year olds also offers access to great seats for just £5 and exclusive events, encouraging independent theatregoing alongside their studies.
