Courses

We currently run 2 accredited training courses per year (Summer and Winter) that cover the basics of stage management and how to operate sound and lighting equipment for live events. These are free to attend and last for 2 weeks on a full-time basis. Edinburgh College accredit Staged for Life courses with a recognised qualification that can lead onto other courses such as an HNC in Technical Theatre.


Our courses are unique, accessible, interactive, practical, hands-on and (most importantly)........lots of fun! No previous experience is required, just lots of enthusiasm and a passion to learn new skills. Our next course will be running in Edinburgh between Feb' 12th - 23rd, 2018. Get in touch to find out more, including how to apply.

Supported Work Placements

Supported work placements are offered to participants who complete our courses, and are keen to gain meaningful industry experience. These have mostly take place during the annual Edinburgh Fringe Festival at venues such as: The Pleasance, Just Festival, Gilded Balloon and Paradise Green. Following successful interview processes, Staged for Life participants have also taken part in placements with BBC Scotland, gaining experience of working in TV studios and outside broadcasts.
