Course Tutor: David Farmer
This one-day drama INSET course immerses you in activities and ideas which you can take back and use immediately in the primary school classroom or drama club. The drama strategies - including still images, teacher in role, hot-seating, ten-second objects, thought-tracking, spotlighting and visualisation - can be used across the curriculum and are designed to meet statutory drama and literacy objectives. Participants have the opportunity to work with drama expert David Farmer, network with colleagues to discuss common problems and devise solutions to put into practice.
The National Curriculum Framework document for England to be taught at key stages 1-4 from September 2014 states:
"All pupils should be enabled to participate in and gain knowledge, skills and understanding associated with the artistic practice of drama. Pupils should be able to adopt, create and sustain a range of roles, responding appropriately to others in role. They should have opportunities to improvise, devise and script drama for one another and a range of audiences, as well as to rehearse, refine, share and respond thoughtfully to drama and theatre performances."
This one-day Drama CPD course is suitable for staff from schools and other organisations as well as freelancers. It will benefit both those who are new to drama and those with more experience, who are looking to refresh their drama skills with a group of like-minded people.

'I thought that you created an atmosphere of trust and cooperation. Everyone was willing to fully participate in every activity and no one felt inhibited. It was an extremely enjoyable day where I learnt a lot. Those days don't come by very often.'
