Students and the ALD
"As a teacher of lighting for performance, I think all students interested in lighting should become members of the ALD. And if you are studying lighting or video & Projection design full time at a Higher Education institution you can enjoy sponsored membership for at least two years of your program of study."

Student Placement Guide
With so many students approaching Lighting Designers for work placements we thought it would be sensible to clarify what is on offer and what to expect.
This guide outlines advice for both the student and the lighting designer on how to approach potential placements, what both sides should expect and offer the other and general etiquette of working in a professional work place. It is also a useful guide for tutors to use when setting up such placements.
