RSC Education works in partnership with schools, theatres, universities and other organisations both across the UK and internationally
Our long-term partnerships offer a bespoke programme of work tailored to the needs of individual institutions, staff and student bodies.
RSC Education aims to make Shakespeare vivid, accessible and enjoyable for students of all ages and their teachers. We create opportunities for young people to learn about, participate in, challenge, shape and make performances of Shakespeare’s work in classrooms and communities.
HOW WE CAN WORK TOGETHER
Work with teachers and faculty
Through working with the text in the same way that RSC actors do in a professional rehearsal room, our innovative professional development and learning opportunities support teachers to develop their own confidence and skills, as well as inspire young people and students.
Work with students
Working with an RSC Associate Learning Practitioner, our workshops use active, exploratory, problem-solving methods to help students see Shakespeare as a playwright who can still speak to young people today.
RSC artists provide workshop support around student work or to work directly with teachers and students to help form performances based on Shakespeare’s work.
Through our Shakespeare Learning Zone and library of additional digital resources we can help support home learning, bring the RSC videos and instructional content into the classroom all of which underpin a community of practice based on RSC pedagogy.
Our International Partnerships
Each year we typically work with over 1,000 state schools in the UK. Our international partners pay a fee to the RSC which is invested back into our work. If you are interested in discussing being an international partner of RSC Education, please contact Victoria Cholmondeley email@example.com.
