Lakeside Arts

Student Traineeships

Lakeside Arts Centre Student Traineeships 2012-14

Over recent years Lakeside has been developing a small programme of paid opportunities which provide practical, vocational experience and skills development for individuals who are keen to develop a future career working in the arts.  This is a fabulous opportunity for students at the University of Nottingham to benefit from practical, hands-on, experience working alongside professional arts practitioners and administrators.


Here are some quotes from previous trainees:
"I think the traineeships are a great initiative - it's difficult to get experience elsewhere as most places want you to already have experience before they'll give you any (not helpful!).  Definitely a good thing to add to a CV." 
- Rosalind Kipps (Philharmonia)

"The tutor, Jane Stockley, has developed my skills and I'm excited to start taking more responsibility in my final term by running the sessions with Jane's support.  The position provides good experience as I am strongly considering teaching or going into gallery work." 
- Claire Taylor (Gallery Art Group)

"Very valuable and massively positive.  I enjoyed the flexibility of the groups and working with Beth Shouler, the Lakeside Youth Theatre tutor"
- Mathilda Branson (Lakeside Youth Theatre)

 

Ensemble Traineeship

 Lakeside Music Office is offering four student traineeships for University of Nottingham students for the 2014/15 academic year, two that focus on the choir and two that focus on the Philharmonia.  The trainees will be introduced to a range of arts administration tasks under the guidance and direction of the Lakeside Music Officer and Music Assistant.  The trainees will assist specifically in the management of the University ensembles: University Philharmonia and University Choir.

The Traineeship will provide the opportunity for students to develop skills and knowledge in the following broad areas:

• orchestral and choir management
• concert management
• music librarianship
• marketing

Third-year and postgraduate students considering careers in arts administration are particularly encouraged to apply.
