Drama in the Classroom
Drama is a great tool for learning, but how can you actually use it to support your teaching? Perhaps you have been asked to teach some drama lessons for your school, but are not too sure where to start? Or perhaps you would just like a few extra games to play with your class.
Our HIT *training sessions are jam packed- with ideas and inspiration to help you bring all the fun of the theatre into the classroom. Our workshop leaders will guide you through a series of games and exercises that can be easily adapted for any topic.
You'll leave brimming with confidence, practical experience and a smile on your face! Not forgetting all the brilliant new ideas you would have picked up along the way.
Please note: All inset training includes advice and support on working inclusively with children and young people. Workshop leaders will offer practical demonstrations as well as answering any questions you may have when supporting children with additional needs.
*Suitable for all teachers and support staff working with children and young people.
