Would you like to teach and make theatre with children, teenagers, adults and/or senior citizens – making work that is meaningful for them and for you, whether in schools, on the street or at festivals? If your answer is ‘Yes’, the theatre an education programme is for you. With our training, you will become a qualified teacher with a Bachelor in Education: a versatile theatre-making teacher and teaching theatre practitioner. You will learn how to make theatre and coach others to do the same. You will initiate and direct. You will conceive and create projects, classes and workshops. We’ll train you to be an enterprising theatre teacher who activates people!

Artist and educator in one

We believe that as a theatre teacher you’re sure to achieve the most in both educational and artistic terms if you can nourish other people through your own self-motivation, fascinations and curiosities. That’s why the curriculum pays so much attention to developing both your artistic and your teaching skills, and to connecting them with each other. You will get training in a wealth of approaches to theatre making – all with a focus on learning to draw on a variety of sources, disciplines (such as material, light, sound, costumes) and acting styles, and developing a strong sense of space

‘Think globally, act locally’

We see theatre as a place of encounter, a place where you can probe the world. You will learn to connect the issues of our times with your passion for theatre. As a connected artist, you will be able to bring people together. You will challenge them on both the artistic and pedagogical front, and coax them into sharing their stories with each other and audiences. And you will do all this by translating your understanding of global connections into theatre-based actions at a local level. In short, our motto is ‘Think globally, act locally’. This will be your basis for developing your own vision on education in theatre and the arts.
