If you are a current or previous member of Spotlight and are eligible for Graduate membership, you will simply need to fill in a new application for membership when Graduate registration opens.
This will be initiated by following the instructions and using the unique password to register provided by your course leader.
When asked during your Graduate application please provide as much detail on your current/previous membership with Spotlight.
Once your application has been completed and submitted our team will look to identify your current/previous membership during application processing.
- If you currently have paid for a full year of Performer or Young Performer membership by annual credit/debit card or annual Direct Debit - you will be issued a pro-rata refund for the remaining time on your current membership. This will occur during the processing of your new Graduate application once this has been submitted.
- If you currently pay by monthly Direct Debit for a Spotlight Performer or Young Performer membership - depending on when your last monthly Direct Debit payment was processed you will receive a pro rata refund for any remaining time on your current month of membership.
- Your payment details and any existing Direct Debit instructions for monthly or annual payments on your previous membership will be cancelled when your Graduate profile is processed and is live on Spotlight.
Please note that a Spotlight Graduate profile and application will override all current/previous membership profiles on Spotlight. As this is a separate membership type we cannot automatically carry any data across.
If you are a current Spotlight member we would recommend signing in to your account online and saving your profile CV and any media that you wish to keep before completing your Graduate application.
If you have a current active Performer membership you will hold/reserve your professional name on the platform. When applying for your Graduate membership you may encounter an issue when using the professional name currently in use with your Performer profile.
To process your application with your current professional name on Spotlight you will be required to enter this in the following format (John Smith used as an example).
- First name: John
- Surname: WANTSTHISNAME Smith
This will allow your Graduate application to proceed and be submitted. Our team will then be able to identify your current membership using your professional name and amend this for you.
