Course Information

Drama trainees will participate in a 2-hour subject knowledge session every week, delivered by a highly experienced Drama specialist and partnership leader who has worked within the GORSE Academies Trust for a significant period of time. You will deliver highly tailored sessions which will support and challenge trainees to become outstanding practitioners. Subject specific knowledge, and teaching skills, will be enhanced through practical and
theoretical exploration.

Wider reading is at the heart of the course, and you will be encouraged to research and discover aspects of drama that will inspire creative and workable ‘Schemes of Work’ and lesson plans. Exemplar planning materials will be analysed, and you will evaluate the impact of these in practice. Ultimately, you will create your own schemes, building your resource bank in preparation for future teaching. High quality materials will be provided to aid development.

Alongside practical experimentation and investigation, you are given the chance to learn and apply pedagogy. Vital areas such as planning, behaviour management and adaptive teaching, are explored during theory based subject knowledge sessions. Reflection time has been built into the programme, enabling you to evaluate your own practice and that of others. This is incredibly important as the aim is for each trainee to become the teacher that they believe they would like to be. Working in collaboration with highly motivated and inspirational teachers, you will be able to hone your craft and develop your own identity as an exceptional teacher of drama.
