We Take Care of the Details So You Can Focus on What You Need To:

Complete On-Set Teaching Services

For over thirty years, On Location Education (OLE) has offered complete on-set education services for young performers working in stage, film, and television productions. Our services include complete coordination of schoolwork with students’ home schools and the provision of qualified and experienced on-set teachers. OLE can also provide studio teachers for productions, both in and out of California, when state laws and regulations mandate that a California certified teacher/welfare worker is required on set.

Private Tutors

OLE can identify qualified, private tutors who meet the needs of families who are in entertainment, sports, music, or business that require travel or temporary relocation. These private tutors can travel with the family as needed to ensure the children’s educational needs are met, whether the family is staying in a city for a month or traveling through Europe for a year.

National Teacher Database

On Location Education’s continually updated registry of teachers throughout the U.S. and Canada means access to quality educators in the vicinity of almost any production location. Every teacher has been pre-screened and has passed a background check. This can translate into considerable savings in time and expense for production companies.

Touring Teachers

OLE’s registry also includes touring teachers who know the film, television, theatre, and recording industries, and have experience in working with students in these settings. Teachers have credentials from around the globe, and the skills and energy to create effective learning environments anywhere they go.

Child Entertainment Work Permits

Obtaining child work permits requires a lot of time and paperwork. On Location Education is a full-service operation that works with the production companies and parents to complete and file all necessary state forms. We know exactly what you need and when you need it, based on our extensive experience. We’ll handle it all, from contacting the families to filing the appropriate paperwork.  Permits are required for performers in film, television, theatrical productions, as well as for touring musicians and child models.
