CPD for teachers & Professionals

Continued professional development (CPD) is essential for all of us. At Theatre Workout we invest in training to develop our team and grow together whenever we can.
That's why we're delighted to launch our CPD training programme for teachers, actors and creative professionals. Discover our West End resources, online and live events.

Enhancing English Literature through Drama

With reported plans to focus on 'core' subjects like English and Maths when secondary schools return in September, and for other subjects to be suspended until the summer term, now more than ever we need to maximise every opportunity to bring creativity into other subjects.

This session will discuss creative practices and explore practical techniques to help you be more creative in the classroom.

The session may include:

  • Shakespeare

  • Verbatim theatre

  • Storytelling

  • Page to Stage


Date: Monday 17th August 2020, 14.00-16.00 (GMT)
Online
£10 (reduced from £30)

Socially Distanced Theatre and how to make it

The theatre world is itching to get back to work but with so many unknown factors there are many challenges ahead. Schools too have had little guidance on how subjects like Drama are supposed to function.

Collaboration is essential for everything to work, so this session will discuss and explore various techniques around creating socially distanced work, including:

  • Practical exercises you can use with students

  • Devising techniques

  • Non-verbal performance 'v' text-based drama

  • Verbatim theatre


​Date: Tuesday 5th October 2020, 16.00-17.30 (GMT)
Online, £30

Working With Text

Working with text can be a real challenge. A good script can provide a wealth of material to create diverse characters and deliver an outstanding performance, but sometimes it can be quite overwhelming.

Inspired by our collective decades of professional acting experience including productions in the West End, National Theatre, RSC, UK tours and more, we've collected some of our favourite techniques for text-based work, including Shakespeare and contemporary scripts.

Led by Theatre Workout's founder, Adam Milford, himself a professional actor, this workshop has been redesigned to take place online. It will be a group session via Zoom with group exercises and discussion on techniques, exploring a few classical and contemporary scenes, with text provided in advance by email for use during the session. There may also be some break-away activities with participants paired up to try exercises out. We'll be doing as much as we can to replicate exercises we would use in a live format over this two hour session.

WHEN: Wednesday 23rd September 2020, 17.00-18.30 (GMT)
WHERE: Online - ZOOM
COST: £30
