We encourage our students to pursue their career while engaged in the program. We publish the following in our Student Handbook to clarify how this should be done:
If you have an agent please inform them (if you haven’t already) that you are enrolled in this program and need for them to try to schedule any auditions you get (whenever possible) for outside of class hours. We support auditions and bookings as a priority for you but do not accept the missing of full days or entire classes if it is not absolutely necessary. You may be excused for the specific time of your appointment but are still expected in class for the balance of the day.
While you are training at SchoolCreative, if you receive the opportunity to audition for paid film and television work, you have access to ½ hour free coaching (with available instructors) to help get you prepared. To make the most of this opportunity you should show up to these coaching sessions with your lines memorized (off-book) and with a reader.
