Stage One have launched Bridge the Gap, a new initiative developed specifically for people currently under-represented within the producing community.
Over the course of a year, Bridge the Gap will offer training and opportunities to 10 participants to support and guide them. This will be an opportunity for Stage One to build a long term relationship with a range of producers throughout their careers.
Joseph Smith, Chief Executive of Stage One, said:
“Change needs to happen across our whole industry. We want to encourage and be a part of that change, which is why we have created Bridge the Gap. We identified that there were people who weren’t engaging with our training – whether that be for personal, financial or other circumstances and wanted to address it. We hope that this unique and bespoke scheme can welcome a better represented pool of producers in to Stage One and enable them to participate in the work we do.”
Bridge the Gap will include:
A free place on the three day New Producers Workshop.
Tailored masterclasses focusing on career progression and development, which will be adapted to the needs of the participants.
Tickets and access to West End shows.
A year-long mentorship programme, participants will be partnered with a mentor that will be able to support them and cater to their commercial producing needs.
Regular meetings with Stage One staff and producers, who will check in and offer to help with their development; offering employment advice and industry support.
Bridge the Gap will take place over the course of a year, (Oct ‘18 – Oct ‘19) applications are now open and close on Monday 3rd September.
