Work Experience


The Coliseum’s Learning and Engagement Department works with a range of Schools, as well as Further and Higher Education Institutions in the North West including: Oldham College, Clarendon Sixth Form College, University Campus Oldham 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. This year our week-long placement for students will be running Monday 29 June – Friday 3 July 2020. During this placement you will explore multiple aspects of working in a theatre, from technical workshops to assigned marketing tasks.

If you would like to be considered for a placement, please contact, who’ll be in touch to let you know whether we can accommodate your request
