New Initiative Launched to Support Performing Arts Graduates


This new and exciting initiative offers workshops and networking opportunities to all performing arts graduates and industry professionals who want to refresh or develop their skill base.

“At ArtsEd Extra we believe that learning should never stop. The performing arts industry is fiercely competitive, it’s more important than ever to be at the top of your game for auditions and to offer something extra.” – Jonathan Goodwin, Head of the School of Part-Time Learning.

The Professionals Hub will offer a range of affordable workshops enabling young professionals to refine their existing skills and explore new ones. Courses will cover a range of disciplines with future workshops including stand-up comedy, self-taping and acting for camera. Specific course topics can be facilitated on request – just get in touch. The first workshop is The Actor & The Writer, giving graduates the opportunity to work closely with a professional writer and director as they are guided through the process of developing a new script.

It’s not just about training, the Professional Hub will also provide valuable networking opportunities with peers and industry creatives. “It can be a lonely experience as a performer, we want to bring people together to help them to make new connections and support each other.”
