We offer workshops to schools around our productions to enrich your students experience, knowledge and understanding of the show. Workshops can also support specific theatre techniques and styles. All of our workshops are delivered by experienced directors and creatives. We also provide workshops in technical theatre (stage management, lighting, sound and stage).

Partnership Scheme for Newham Schools and East London-based Schools
In the Autumn of 2020, we will introduce a new partnership scheme for Newham schools. 

The programme will involve:

  • A CPD workshop for teachers at Stratford East
  • Teacher previews for the two productions
  • 60 free tickets to our main house productions (spread over two productions)
  • A package of workshops delivered at your school.

Stratford East is an Arts Award supporter. We can provide support for young people with their Arts Award qualifications.

Our offer supports schools at any stage of their Artsmark journey to support and complement their drama provision. Our high-quality programmes will offer rich cultural experiences and support students engagement with and understanding of the arts.

We're keen to provide a high-quality work experience for Newham and neighbouring East London-based students. Please email for more details and how to apply.

We offer a small number of opportunities for people aged 18 or over to gain professional experience within the theatre industry. These opportunities are offered at different points in the year with different departments. Most placements are a week to two weeks long.
