About our Education work
The RSC Education team enables students and teachers to learn about and through Shakespeare. Our manifesto for Shakespeare in schools, Stand up for Shakespeare, calls for children and young people to:
- Do Shakespeare on their feet
- See it Live
- Start it Earlier
Our rich programme of performances, workshops and conferences for students and professional development for teachers are inspired by these three tenets. We offer participants the opportunity to experience Shakespeare in new ways, own his work and shape his legacy.
All of our work is inspired by the creative practice of RSC actors and directors in rehearsal and performance.
Who we are
The Education team is based in Stratford upon Avon but we work with artists and schools across the country.
We have three main programmes of work:
- An Open Access programme for schools and HE students that creates workshops, conferences, onstage events and online resources
- An Education Partnerships programme that works in collaboration with schools nationally through the Learning and Performance Network
- Teaching Shakespeare, a new collaboration with the University of Warwick which produces professional development programmes for teachers that can transform the classroom experience of Shakespeare
