Get practical experience to make doing your youth theatre Risk Assessments fun in this Youth Theatre Foundations training!
Picture this: you’ve come up with the most exciting show your youth theatre has seen in decades. You’ve got lifts, you’ve got fire, you’ve got set changes. And now… you’ve got to write the risk assessment. Where do you start and how do you make sure you don’t have to compromise your project?
Join expert production manager Fi Fraser in a workshop tackling risks. Learn how to use the assessment process to enable creative risks while keeping you and the young people you work with safe. Fi will take you through the process from start to finish through discussions and practical exercises which will have you jumping at the chance to write the assessment for your next project.
This workshop is part of our Youth Theatre Foundations strand of training, focusing on how to run a safe and efficient organisation through policy, legislation and best practice.
The YTAS sector training programme is supported by funding from the Gannochy Trust and Creative Scotland. Bursaries are available to any YTAS Member who requires financial support in order to attend one of our training courses, and will cover any fees associated with the training.
