Start your career off on the right track; join Spotlight as a Graduate

Applications to join Spotlight Graduates open in the first term of your final year of professional training. The courses that are eligible for Spotlight Graduate membership are those which have met certain criteria such as the number of contact hours per week, the balance of practical versus theoretical training, whether it offers a showcase or regular performance opportunities and other, industry-relevant requirements.  

For the academic year beginning September 2017, we are working jointly with Equity to recognise the courses whose students will be eligible for both Spotlight Graduates and Equity student membership. Your course leader will have more information on this, so speak to them to find out if your training fits the bill.

Your professional name

As a professional performer your name is your brand, so it’s important to choose one that’s unique.

Check if your name is available

Just remember that our network is changing all of the time, so we can’t always guarantee that a name will be available when you apply.

*Don't forget that this is a temporary check. The final check will be done when you join.

Applications for Spotlight Graduates 2017 close on 15th December 2017
