Our program generally offers experience across the technical disciplines of production; specifically lighting, staging and sound technology. Placements take place during a 5-day block week (Monday to Friday) from 9am to 5pm. Availability of placements is dependent on show and venue activity.
Work Experience Placements need to fit the following criteria:
Please note: we are unable to offer work experience programs in acting, dance, drama, costume or music.
To apply for a placement, you will need to write our Work Experience Coordinator outlining the preferred time period, the type of work experience requested and the skills and experience which relate to the work experience being requested.

A voluntary internship offers tertiary students an opportunity to gain practical experience whilst completing studies at university. Many students require an internship program to gain credit. We offer voluntary internship opportunities on a case-by-case basis and availability is determined by operational capacity and program feasibility.
We have recently started offering students placements in Finance and Business, Marketing, Publicity and Programming as well.
Students wishing to find out more about a possible internship with QPAC are encouraged to complete a Voluntary Internship Application Form [PDF 35KB] to submit to the Human Resources team via the details below.
