National Drama’s CPD training for secondary teachers

Join us for a day focused on reflection and information gathering following the summer results from the first round of the new specifications for GCSE Drama. If you have questions about the specification you have chosen and you want to discuss what happened with your colleagues or with representatives from the examination boards or even if you think you may want to look at an alternative this event is for you.
The morning will be spent allowing teachers to discuss their experiences of the specifications and the outcome from the summer. Ofqual will also be running one of their evaluation workshops.
The afternoon is an opportunity to meet representatives from all of the exam boards to discuss their qualifications and possibly advise teachers who may be considering changing specifications. This will include the vocational qualifications – AQA and Cambridge Techs and BTEC – that have come online since the introduction of the new GCSE specifications.
Each board will be represented and teachers will be able to spend about 30/40 minutes with each group.

About National Drama
National Drama, the UK’s leading professional association for drama teachers and theatre educators, is dedicated to ensuring that all children and young people have the opportunity to learn about and through drama.
Learning through drama is a natural human process – our brains are ‘wired’ for it. We recognise it as a powerful pedagogy and a creative process that provides a compelling means of exploration, expression and making meaning. Through it we learn what it is to be a human being.
National Drama is dedicated to the development, promotion and support of Drama and Theatre both in the UK and Internationally. We are an open and inclusive organisatiuon – One Forum: Many Voices – and we positively welcome as members all those who are interested in drama and theatre in learning contexts whether in the UK or beyond: see our Membership page.
We believe that teachers need to be learning themselves, practically and theoretically – and this is why National Drama arranges high quality Drama and Theatre Conferences and Events and Publications to support Drama practice. Visit our CPD site at ND CPD; our Magazine site at Drama Magazine; our Research Journal at Drama Research and our Shop site at ND Shop for other publications and backnumbers of past issues of Drama magazine.
