National Youth Theatre is looking for 30 early career artists who are interested in working as NYT Emerging Associates over the next academic year. Over a series of paid training sessions, you will develop skills in leadership, mentoring, inclusive practice, safeguarding and co-created spaces to evolve your facilitation practice.

Within this programme, there is the opportunity of paid work including sector-specific mentoring for young people across NYT’s projects and networks to build their soft and functional skills as well as co-facilitation roles for NYT e.g. Community Workshops and Auditions, reviewing self-tapes and assisting with intake recruitment for Summer 2025.

You do not need to be an NYT member or alumni to take part in this opportunity, we’re really keen to meet people that we’ve not collaborated with before. We also very much welcome applications from current NYT Emerging Artists and NYT creatives looking to progress. This programme is aimed at those with facilitation experience that would like to develop through learning new skills and peer-to-peer sharing best practice.

Emerging Associates are those who:

  • Have worked as an assistant within training and creative spaces
  • A passion for working with and mentoring the next generation of creatives
  • Has their own practice (assisting or leading at similar companies AND/OR their own creative practice within theatre (including backstage)
  • Has shown potential to lead an NYT room independently
  • Must be London based (have a London postcode) for this programme
  • Must be aged 24-35

Mentoring and training led by NYT staff and Associates, Anna Niland (Associate Director), Elliot Howe (Community Producer), Mumba Dodwell (NYT Associate and Director), Libby Devereux (Playing Up and Wellbeing Project Manager), Esther Myers (National Inclusion Producer)

Funded by the Greater London Authority New Deal for Young People, this project aims to provide mentorship for young Londoners from underrepresented and marginalized backgrounds across London Boroughs and where possible, we’d love to represent these identities within the cohort of mentors too.

Training Dates – You must be available for these dates:

11th and 12th May - 10-6pm (In-person at NYT)

19th June – 6:30 – 8:30 (In-person at NYT)
