Five students from Welcombe Hills School will spend a year working in a range of RSC departments, finding out how a theatre works and learning new skills.
In September, we welcomed five new interns to the RSC for a year of supported work experience.
The students are all from Welcombe Hills special school in Stratford-upon-Avon, which is part of our Associate Schools Programme. They've each been attached to a department based on their skills and interests, and will be working in a range of roles, from Box Office to Props, Events and Exhibitions to HR.
Education intern Chelsea said: “Everybody has been really friendly, and I’ve learnt quite a bit. I went into my first meeting last week…People don’t have to put their hands up like at school; they just said what their thoughts were and responded to questions at appropriate times. I am glad that I was chosen to be one of the interns".
