Assistant Directors play a crucial role within our creative teams. Our placements provide a vital learning opportunity for young directors. Each year we will work with organisations such as the JMK Trust and Bristol Old Vic Theatre School to provide placements, and we also invite applications for two of our productions each year.
The Trainee Director Scheme for directors in Wales is a total game changer for directors to gain experience not just in directing, but in every inch of how a theatre operates. I'll be forever grateful to The Carne Trust and Theatr Clwyd for this opportunity. Being attached to a theatre like Clwyd has given me the ultimate training, confidence in my ability as an artist and most importantly, friends and memories for lifeFrancesca Goodridge
