About the organisation

Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School

The Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School, which is a not for profit organisation, opened in 2001 as a Prince�s Trust Business. Since then it has won multiple Business of London Awards and has a growing reputation within the performing arts industry.

Our guiding principle is to provide a safe, supportive environment for young people to explore the performing arts, whether they have dreams of entering the profession or simply wish to use the performing arts classes to learn some valuable life enhancing skills. We have an incredible team of staff who encourage team work, self-expression, confidence, communication, discipline, respect and fun.

Great opportunity to work with young people (ages 4 - 18) from across the capital who are exploring the performing arts for both career and life skills. You will work as part of a small team of people who are passionate about the arts. Support our teachers, admin staff and students, while developing valuable transferable skills such as leadership and coaching. We are looking for help at our four branches across London, where we run classes on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays. Ideally we’d like to hear from proactive, reliable and friendly people who can volunteer with us for at least one term, but we can be flexible and work around your schedule as well. Previous experience working with children or in the performing arts is not a necessity!

Role Aim: 

To support the students and staff during the running of the school.


Duties may include assisting the branch receptionist, supporting teachers in class, supervising students outside of the classroom and generally motivating the children in their learning and performance techniques. We also organise events and shows on a regular basis, so there will be opportunities to be involved with those. Ideally we would like to hear from people who can work with us for one term at least.

Skills needed: 

Good teamwork and communication skills. While we’re always happy to hear from people who have previous experience working with children or in the performing arts, this is not a necessity!


All new volunteers have a one-to-one meeting with the volunteer coordinator, and will then be supported by staff at the branch they volunteer with.
