ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY - NEXT GENERATION ACT SUCCESS


Last month 30 students from three schools within the RSC Associate Schools Network took part in a recruitment workshop led by RSC casting director Charlie Metcalf and RSC Associate Director Paul Ainsworth. We are delighted to announce that three of our students have been selected to be part of the Next Generation Act programme.


The RSC’s Paul Ainsworth commented, “We were really impressed by all the young people’s focus during last month’s session and the skills on display. You should be very proud of such a strong group of young people at Sacred Heart - it’s testimony to the work you do”.

 

WHAT IS IT?


Next Generation Act is the Royal Shakespeare company’s long-term talent development programme for young people across the country. Over several years, the RSC work with selected individuals to develop their skills, create productions and support them in their first steps into the world of work.      The company aim to create a more level playing field and support those talented individuals who don’t get the opportunities that other young people may have access to. 


CAN ANYONE APPLY TO BE PART OF IT?


No - but with good reason. The aim is to forge long term partnerships with regional theatres and schools where the RSC can make the biggest difference, often in areas with low socio-economic status and the least access to culture. Next Generation reach more than 500,000 young people each year. The students who are picked must be incredibly talented and wouldn’t ordinarily benefit from opportunities like this.
