Careers Week is an expanded version of MTC's previous work experience program, creating access for more students to participate in a virtual format. Conducted entirely online via Zoom, students meet a range of MTC staff and artists in panels and workshops, and collaborate on mini-projects to experience how various theatre professionals work together.

Who is eligible?
Careers Week is for Victorian high school students in Years 10-11.
We strongly encourage students who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and those with disabilities to apply.
How does it work?
Selected students from across Victoria will meet virtually and participate in interactive workshops and Q&A sessions with MTC staff and artists. Students will explore various careers including acting, design, playwriting, technical production and arts management. Theatre is a collaborative artform, so students will be working together at times during the week.
To participate in Careers Week, students and their parents/carers must read and agree to the Participation Guidelines.
