Programme specification:

This new postgraduate programme will support teachers at a time when funding cuts and curriculum changes are consistently demotivating them and removing opportunities for CPD. It will build on the already established reputation that the Performance and Cultural Industries and the University of Leeds have for teacher support and Educational Engagement, and offer a socially engaged, critically informed and rigorous programme of self-analysis, peer support and teaching, based in creative contemporary performance praxis. By working in partnership with Leeds Playhouse the programme will have a unique industrial emphasis as well as provide opportunities for thinking more broadly about the creative and cultural industries beyond school based learning.
The programme comprises an intensive residential summer school, an additional weekend workshop and a sustained period of professional practice, which is supported by the University via individual tutorials,supervision and extensive online materials via the VLE. The programme provides an academic and theoretical framework for the teachers’ practice-based learning, giving them an opportunity to reflect on and contextualise their professional practice. It provides access to the latest research and insights into contemporary performance practice and provides opportunities for embedding this into educational drama teaching. It has the potential to position the University of Leeds as a leading provider of CPD provision for Drama teachers nationally.
