Young Promoters scheme – Work Experience with Highlights

In May this year we’re joined by a Year 10 student from Kirkby Stephen Grammar School, who will be spending their work experience week with us, learning about the Arts and Culture sector. They will be experiencing all aspects of working with our small but busy team at Highlights HQ in Brough, through both our Participate Programme and our touring seasonal Programme.

Highlights works with many young people, bringing artists into schools but also through our Young Promoters scheme. We offer 12 – 25 year olds the chance to develop a deeper understanding of the arts, events management, employment roles within the sector and working in the community.

Talk to us about where we can help you develop your skills best. You may want to get involved with the production and technical side, you may want to help with PR and marketing, or you may want to write reviews for live theatre, music or dance performances.

“I would definitely recommend it to anyone around my age – late teens to early 20’s – who are studying in the creative industries, or just starting out, wanting to work in the creative industries”.

“I’ve learnt a lot of communication skills whilst doing interviews and talking to people.”
