Stage management program
This program is an opportunity for teachers to develop high-level skills in stage management and the production of theatrical productions and events.
Facilitated by industry professionals and teachers from the Department of Education with specialised skills.
About the program
The program includes workshops, seminars and practical activities. The combination of these activities provides opportunities for networking with teachers and professional development. Attendees also view a theatre performance as part of this experience.
Practical sessions focus on:
- Workplace Health and Safety Issues
- Production management and operations for theatrical productions and events
- Sound, lighting design and staging for theatrical productions and events
- Stage management for theatrical productions and events
To gain accreditation, teachers must complete the practical experience component of the program. This gives participants an opportunity to implement the skills developed at the workshop in a real-life setting. Participants nominate a school, regional or state education performance event in which they will be involved in the Stage Management team. The time and quality of involvement are assessed to ensure that it incorporates the appropriate level of involvement.
Numbers for the program are limited.
Participants from both metropolitan and non-metropolitan schools are invited to participate, and the program is open to teachers from both government and non-government schools. Current school students are unable to enrol in this program.
