Clearing the path to LAMDA training

LAMDA Pathways is an engagement and skills development programme which uses our reputation, expertise and facilities to remove the barriers that prevent hard-to-reach young people from accessing performance arts training, employment or activity.

Through the programme we work to create long term sustainable partnerships with selected schools, colleges and youth arts organisations in London and in the areas close to our regional auditions, and where there are high levels of social disadvantage and low rates of participation in higher education.

Last year, we delivered four workshops on performance, conservatoire training and career pathways in the arts for students at Dudley College, Wyggeston and QEI College (Leicester), Bridgend College and Scarborough TEC. We were delighted that six of the workshop participants went on to audition for our BA (Hons) Professional Acting course.

LAMDA Pathways is supported by John Lyon’s Charity in London, Esmeé Fairbairn Foundation regionally in England and the Ashley Family Foundation and Darkley Trust in Wales.
