"I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” ― Oscar Wilde
Drama teachers play an integral part in their students’ education, covering all subjects and skills that are required in the curriculum. Drama enhances students' artistic and creative abilities and gives them a better understanding of themselves and their world. Drama fosters self discipline, confidence and team work and develops skills in interpreting, researching, negotiating, problem solving and decision making
On this SCITT course the Subject Specialist Lead will work with you throughout to develop your subject knowledge. The course will prepare you to teach Drama and Theatre Studies across the 11-18 age range. In conjunction with centre based training classes you will study key learning theories and methods and develop strategies to create engaging and motivating Drama lessons which are intended to challenge and inspire your students. The Subject Days can be personalised and adapted to personal strengths and subject knowledge needs based on your two placements in partner schools. We train Drama teachers who are passionate about their subject and who seek to teach outstanding lessons. Many of our trainees acquire jobs in partner schools and quickly progress in the first few years after qualifying.
