Occasionally we become aware of a particularly bright or keen child attending a workshop, and wish we could further their interest, in co-operation with the school, the child and their parents.
With strong support from our Volunteers we have decided to look for ways to help committed children follow their interest further, outside school or after leaving. In theatre this will be in association with our partners The Old Vic for the South East, and the JMK Trust for the nations and regions. For film and TV we have good access to the wide range of BFI schemes in London and various parts of the country.
In terms of career advice, we are collecting a lot of very practical tips from our Volunteers as guidance for our protégés on how they might follow their dream.
We will be announcing more detail on Talent Watch shortly.
