Drama Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Elizabeth Kane, Learning Officer at The Customs House attended this course with David Farmer in February. After the inspirational session Elizabeth was keen to bring him to South Shields and wrote,

‘It was amongst the best delivered and organised CPD I have ever attended. This was thanks to the mix of practical activity, resources and opportunities to talk. It was very useful for me to hear about the sorts of drama being taught in schools and heartening to meet so many people passionate about the subject.’
