FOR TEACHERS & CAREERS LEADERS

Information and guidance for careers leads, teachers, and other professionals, to help you steer the right young people to study at BOA Stage and Screen Production Academy.

Finding the right learners

We aim to open doors to real careers for young people with a passion for the arts and creativity. For example they may be showing an interest in:

Art

Fashion

Technology

Music

Design Tech

Theatre

Lighting & Sound

Media

Journalism

Film

TV

Social Media

Content Creation

Festivals and Events

Creative Writing

Photography

Videos

Hair & Make-up

Costume

Textiles

Fashion

We understand that most young people will not be aware of the many job-roles or career opportunities in the stage and screen industries, and they may have no prior knowledge, skills or experience. So we have put together some resources on this page to help.
