Schools & Teachers

Are you a teacher, tutor or education professional who wants to get your pupils or students involved at the Traverse Theatre? Or are you a student who wants to engage with us?

Traverse Engagement offers a number of opportunities for education groups and individuals.

Backstage Tours

Get exclusive access to unseen parts of the Traverse and discover what goes on behind the scenes of Scotland's New Writing theatre. The tour will include the history of the Traverse as well as visits to our Green Room, Wardrobe, Dressing Rooms, Workshop and two Theatres. Backstage tours can be tailored to the needs of the group and can accommodate up to 20 people.

Placements for Colleges and Universities

Occasionally we are able to offer placements to college and university students, across a range of departments including:

  • Marketing 
  • Administration
  • Artistic

These placements are depended on the needs of the organisation and as such we cannot guarantee the availability of placements. Please send speculative applications/CVs to Due to a high demand for placements, applicants may be required to attend an interview.
