Train In Work (Arts facilitation taster session), Blue Elephant Theatre


Taster session online via zoom

Weds 25th Nov 3pm-4.30pm

Thurs 26th Nov 2pm-3.30pm

Are you interested in learning to run drama sessions with young people?

Blue Elephant Theatre are delighted to once again be running their hugely successful Train in Work programme. A training and work project designed for 18-24 years olds which will introduce participants to the world of arts facilitation and give them experience running sessions with young people.

This 1.5 hour online session offers a taste of the project, discussing what the role of a drama facilitator is and the skills and benefits that can be gained from drama. We will introduce drama activities, ice breakers and activities to promote concentration and self-expression, all of which you’ll learn to run yourself through the Train-in-work programme.

Applications will open shortly for the full programme which will start in December as one day/half-day a week. Participants will receive expenses/a small fee. More information about this will be given at the taster.
