Work Experience


The team at Cast are very pleased to be bringing two weeks of a work experience offer for the young people of Doncaster and surrounding areas!

Previous years have been a huge success, with one group even throwing a party at the end of the week because they loved it so much!

Feedback from 2019 and 2022:

“Emma’s had the best time ever and come home every night absolutely buzzing with excitement, it sounds like it’s been well organised and varied content and I’d like to say THANKS.”

"Thank you so much to you and everyone else at Cast for organising and leading this week, as it’s been so beneficial to me as an aspiring artist, and there’s so much more I know now than if I hadn’t stumbled upon the work experience application!"


Our offers for 2024:

Week 1: for young people aged 14+ in February half term 2024

Week 2: for young people aged 16+ at the end of July 2024,  just before the summer holidays. Please read below!
