Training

Working with schools, colleges, youth workers, community agencies/workers and professionals in performing arts, we offer a wide range of professional training opportunities in a variety of areas; all around performing arts and creative education.

Designed to your needs

We have years of experience in developing, writing and delivering professional training around all aspects of creative education and creative ways to work with vulnerable groups, children and young people. Not only do we have the knowledge, but everything we include in our training courses comes from having years of experience of working with children, young people and adults and in working in education and the performing arts sector as professionals. Our bespoke training is focused around your needs and developed in partnership with you, making it perfect for school inset days or for Continuous Professional Development for your team.

Our bespoke training could include:

  • Using creative techniques to work with challenging behaviours.
  • Using creative techniques to work with students with Special Educational Needs.
  • Working with gangs and conflict management creatively.
  • Effectively engaging students in ‘drama’.
  • Teaching Shakespeare effectively and creatively.

Managing Behaviour Using Creative Techniques Training Course

The training was pitched at an accessible level. The things I already knew were reinforced and developed further to improve my practice. I now feel confident enough to run a session based on Theatre of the Oppressed.
