The programme takes a forward-facing approach to technical theatre, promotes exploration of new technologies, teaches industry fundamentals, and balances vocational training with academic study. It is designed to develop industry techniques and to nurture the next generation of highly competent theatre industry professionals, with the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience working in many professional theatre settings, enabling students to be an integral part of live events, ranging from student-produced work to professional visiting companies.  

Appointed on a Teaching, Scholarship and Professional Practice (TSPP) profile, colleagues would also be expected to contribute to ongoing scholarly activity and pedagogic development, as well as pursue (where applicable) a professionally facing practice and/or developing productive connections to the professional sector.
