The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama
Central’s mission is to train the practitioners who will shape the future of theatre and performance. We train stage and technical managers, lighting designers and production lighting specialists, sound designers and technicians, scenic constructors, scenic artists, costume constructors, prop makers and stage designers to degree level, working closely with industry as mentors and placement hosts. We recognize theatre and performance as collaborative arts, and place equal value on design and technical production and management within their creative ecosystem as any other role.
We are committed to the highest ethical standards and to proactively embracing diversity in all our work. We believe that recognising, understanding, respecting and valuing our differences leads us closer to excellence in everything we do. We are therefore committed to working with the industry to promote careers in all aspects of theatre and the performing arts to as diverse a group of potential applicants as possible, and to understanding and actively addressing any discrimination or other obstacles that prevent people from choosing these careers.
