CPD workshops for primary school teachers

CPD workshops for primary school teachers

This month, National Drama launches The Primary Initiative: a series of high quality CPD drama workshops for primary school teachers.

The Blahs’ Artistic Director, Deborah Pakkar-Hull, will co-lead two afternoon sessions of training to enthuse and provide new strategies to enhance the teaching of literacy, cross-curricular work and social inclusion.

The aims of the workshops are to:

  • introduce drama strategies to teachers who are new to drama;
  • experience Drama as a pedagogy to approach core subjects and topics;
  • highlight the learning potential when teacher and pupils work collaboratively in role;
  • engage teachers in a drama experience that deepens their knowledge of drama skills, conventions and form;
  • provide resources that can be used in the classroom.


The CPD workshops are only £30 per participating teacher and take place in multiple locations. Follow the links below for the school’s locations and to book online.

Monday 30th September: Parkgate Academy, Ollerton, Nottinghamshire. Book online here

Tuesday 8th October: Manor Wood Primary (formerly known as Carr Manor Primary), Leeds. Book online here
