YMT works closely with teachers all over the UK and Ireland to offer opportunities to as many young people as possible.
With a presence across the UK and a reputation for creating innovative new work, YMT offers high-quality training for young people interested in the performing arts - whether that's as a singer, dancer, actor, musician, director, writer, composer or stage technician. There are loads of ways to get involved with YMT, either through the audition process, our Summer Skills Courses or our Schools Outreach Work.
Through YMT's Teacher Ambassador scheme, we work closely with teachers to help promote YMT's activities directly to students. In return, we can offer CPD training and discounted rates for our auditions and courses!
YMT has a long-standing affiliation with the NASUWT as principal donors, supporting the creative and personal development of young people through the medium of music theatre and they are a strong advocate of the YMT Teacher Ambassador scheme.
