Mentoring Programme

Would you like advice and guidance from experienced professionals? 

Or do you have the potential to help someone who is new to the industry?

As one of the benefits of membership, UK Theatre offers a Mentoring Programme where experienced professionals are available to support those members who would like some support and guidance. 

The UK Theatre Mentoring Programme will enhance your skills, grow your confidence and expand your network.

UK Theatre's Mentoring Programme is supported by Integro, in association with Chubb

"I thought the mentoring was amazing. To have the unprecedented (for me) access to one of London’s brightest and best theatre producers was/is life changing.”
2015 Mentee: Anthony Green, Producer. (Professional Member)

“Mentoring is always an interesting process and makes you re-examine your expectations.”

2015 Mentor: Paul Clay, Feat of Clay

In the mentoring relationship the mentor offers to share their time and expertise with the mentee, acting as a sounding board, a source of information or just offering friendly words of encouragement, support and advice.

We aim to find each Mentee a Mentor outside of their current workplace so the Mentee can feel free to discuss any issues they may have and can work through them informally with their Mentor. 

A mentor can be helpful in dealing with a specific issue over a short period of time, or for a longer period if you feel you need ongoing support and guidance from someone with experience in your field.

Once we match our mentees with suitable mentors, you can then set a schedule to suit you both in terms of how often you meet, how much contact you have, etc. UK Theatre will contact mentees and mentors at regular points to find out if the mentoring match is proving helpful and to ensure you're both getting the most out of the opportunity.

Working with a mentor gives you time to reflect and space to think, as well as more general encouragement.

If you would like to find a Mentor, please fill out and email a registration form to UK Theatre. You will need to detail your career history and explain what you hope to gain from being mentored. 

If you have any questions, do get in touch with us at or call 020 7557 6700 to find out more.

We have a fantastic group of active Mentors already, but the demand from our Members continues to grow.

If you would like to become a mentor please fill out and email a registration form to UK Theatre. You will need to detail your career history and explain what you can offer as a mentor.
