Young Technicians Academy

Back to Activities

Young Technicians Academy opened in 2021 in Yaxley in Cambridgeshire, aiming to build better futures for young people aged 5 to 19. This state of the art facility offers training, experiences and qualifications for young people in the creative industries.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • Clear communication is essential in the live events industry, Young Technicians Academy helps you develop these skills.
  • Volunteering with Young Technicians gives valuable skills experience.
  • Making meaningful friendships with other students.


I have been involved in both festivals scenarios and theatre productions; and I truly believe – and this is what makes this scheme so unique – that I would not be where and who I am now without those hands on experiences since day one. However, not only have I developed my skills in event production, but I have also become a more confident, responsible person. I have met loads of new people in the industry and discovered that everyone started off the same as I have and so I have really taken their advice on board and bettered myself. I would 100% recommend this scheme to anybody as it is so rewarding and character building and it gives you a perfect mixture of theory and practical knowledge to become an expert in your field. I promise you won’t regret it! ‘ –Hannah, Student
