The Directors Program is open to any professional emerging director in the early stage of their directing career. Our program is a unique opportunity to exchange experiences and be part of a network of young, talented directors working and living in the UK. To take part in activities you need to join the Directors Network.
To join you should be a professional director who is:

  • at an early stage of their career (irrespective of age)
  • resident in the UK
  • not in full time education
  • over 18 years of age

Please do not apply if you do not currently fit the above criteria as we will be unable to consider your application. International Directors not resident in the UK may apply but will only have access to the relevant parts of the network. Find out more information on International Directors.

To compliment the Directors Network we also run a Designer and a Producer network which provides opportunities to work with the directors to develop skills, network and hopefully create future collaborations. For more information have a look at What We Do.


Step One

To apply to become a member of the Network, please complete and submit the relevant online application form:

You will need to upload an up-to-date photo for the online application. If you have any queries about this please contact us at the email address below. The information provided in your application form will be used to generate a personal profile that can be viewed by other network members which will be publicly accessible once you have been accepted.

Step Two

Once you have completed your online application please email or post the following documents to Sue Emmas (directorsprogram@youngvic.org), Directors Program, The Young Vic, 66 The Cut, London, SE1 8LZ:

  • a copy of your CV
  • a short letter clearly stating where you are based, an outline of your experience and why you are interested in joining the directors program. We'd also be interested in hearing about any shows you might have seen at the Young Vic or a show that you have enjoyed recently. 

Please make sure you put the correct postage on your letter.

Once you have sent your CV and covering letter you will be invited to a welcome meeting. If you live outside the capital and it is difficult for you to travel to London please let us know in your letter. We will make alternative arrangements. Once accepted you will then have access to the members' area of the site. From then you will be able to contact the other directors and designers, be kept up to date with events and opportunities and be able to update your personal profile.


DESIGNERS

Once you have completed your online application you will be signed up to the members' area of the site. Once signed up you will be able to contact the other designers and directors, be kept up to date with relevant events and be able to update your personal profile.

Your personal profile can be viewed by other network members and will be publicly accessible once you have been accepted.


PRODUCERS

Once you have completed your online application you will be signed up to the members' area of the site. Once signed up you will be able to contact the other designers and directors, be kept up to date with relevant events and be able to update your personal profile.

The directors or designers will not be able to contact you directly through the site. Your personal profile will be accessible to other producers on the network but will not be publicly accessible.


We try to respond as quickly as we can to requests to join but it may take up to a month for your membership to become active after sending all the information.

If you have any queries, please contact directorsprogram@youngvic.org.
