"The daunting task of helping students to become comfortable with the complex language of Shakespeare’s plays seemed impossible. However, after just the first training INSET with the RSC, I was able to see that the rehearsal room approach was the exact tool we needed to overcome this hurdle."

Our CPD courses can be tailored to meet the needs of whole schools (for primary or SEND settings), English and/or Drama departments at secondary or they can be a powerful way of bringing specialist teachers together across a local area. They can be designed for teachers at all phases of education, from EYFS to Further Education. They can also be designed to meet the development needs of teaching assistants.

We can run a course at a school or venue of your choice for up to 25 staff. Or you can choose to bring a group to Stratford-upon-Avon where we can provide the venue and arrange the day for you.

Costing from just £35 per teacher for a full day, your bespoke CPD course will be led by one or more of our team of Associate Learning practitioners, all of whom have direct experience of RSC rehearsal rooms, either as actors, directors or other creative specialists, plus extensive experience of working with children, young people and their teachers.

Courses can be created for teachers from Early Years to Key Stage 5, and can cover any Shakespeare play. Examples of the kinds of courses we provide are included on the booking form.

Following the course, each participant will receive a set of high quality resources a detailed description of the strategies and texts used during the day to support their planning and teaching.
