If you’re looking to grow and develop your skills and experience, Walk the Plank’s learning and training programmes provide outdoor arts practitioners and producers with a range of opportunities.

We believe that excellence in outdoor arts comes from working alongside other artists and producers, either through formal training programmes or via our tried and tested training through production opportunities.

Whether you’re an apprentice, a recent graduate, a mid-career artist or a production manager our various courses are designed to give you the hands-on training you’re looking for.

Our training programmes are often linked to forthcoming productions, and include our Arts Council England-funded ELEVATE programme which gives practitioners the chance to learn from leading experts in their field.

Our new muti-purpose outdoor arts facility at Cobden Street in Salford, due to open in summer 2017, will have a dedicated education centre.
