LEAP Ambassadors are a group of young people aged 16-25 who are selected via application onto Birmingham Royal Ballet’s professional development programme, led by the Learning, Engagement, Access & Participation department. The programme offers a unique opportunity for young people to investigate behind the scenes, experience practical projects, develop new skills, meet new people and become an integral part to a vibrant arts organisation.
Ambassadors participate in group training sessions, which offer insight into the various departments and job roles available in a large arts organisation. These include Project Management, Company Management, Brand, Marketing & Communications, Technical Production and much more! Adding further value, Ambassadors receive a personalised training programme tailored to their interests, where they have the chance to shadow a member of staff and gain invaluable ‘hands on’ experience.
Following a successful pilot year in 19/20 and a year break due to the pandemic, we’re delighted to be opening the doors to this programme again. This year’s programme will take place November 2021 – July 2022 and culminate with a sharing of the Ambassadors achievements and the LEAP Ambassadors Celebration on Friday 8 July 2022 in the Patrick Studio, Birmingham Hippodrome.
