Technical and Specialist Services - The Esplanade's TTTP and Training Programmes

Technical and Specialist Services

The National Arts Council (NAC) supports artists to build diverse capabilities across a broad range of skills. Expertise is needed not only in art-making, but also in areas such as technical theatre and production. By partnering our cultural institutions to offer programmes for artists, we can raise competencies and strengthen the arts ecosystem as a whole.

The Esplanade’s Technical Theatre Training Programme 

The Technical Theatre Training Programme (TTTP) is a 12-month sponsored training programme that provides entry-level training in technical theatre. It is a competency-based training programme that is designed to meet the Singapore Workforce Qualifications (WSQ) standards.

Trainees will learn and be assessed on the technical aspects of theatrical production including:

  • constructing and rigging scenery
  • hanging and focusing of lighting, 
  • recording and mixing of sound and
  • organising or coordinating for a production.

The training programme will provide the knowledge, skills and experience in working on a range of productions in staging, lighting and sound.
