In consultation with relevant staff, students will negotiate a period of attachment (secondment) to a theatre company, film company, dance company or other suitable organisation or professional practitioner. The subject provides the student with an opportunity, within a professional environment, to test and develop skills learnt over Years 1 and 2 of the course while also becoming part of the professional network.
The secondment can be undertaken full time for a specific period or for an equivalent number of hours spread over a longer period. Two secondments making up the required time are preferred but not essential. The secondment should be in a related field to the two modules studied in Production Skills 2A.
The subject provides the student with an opportunity to test and develop skills learnt over the past two years within a professional environment. It also provides a valuable opportunity to develop professional networks. A written report allows to consider reflection of the secondment experience, including observations of the production practices in relation to their own practice and future career asprations.
