The Coliseum’s Learning and Engagement Department works with a range of Further and Higher Education institutions in the North West including Oldham College, University Campus Oldham, the University of Manchester and the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts (Wigan campus).
We receive many requests for short and long term placements and are only able to accommodate a small number of these each year. If you’d like to be considered for a placement, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, who’ll be in touch to let you know whether we will be able to accommodate your request.
We occasionally offer paid Internships. When paid internships are available, these will be advertised on this page – and via social media – so please keep your eye out for any opportunities we may have.
We do have a number of alternatives for those people truly interested in finding out more about all the different aspects of the theatre industry:
