This course provides a comprehensive and practical introduction to using drama techniques and activities, and play-based learning in the classroom. It will equip you to confidently prepare and deliver engaging lessons and courses to teach soft skills using drama.
The course provides a solid foundation for teachers considering the Trinity CertPT in Teaching Soft Skills with Drama.

Using drama activities and methods is one of the best ways to teach and practise essential soft skills through a fun and exciting learning environment. Teachers place a larger emphasis upon ‘doing’ rather than memorising, allowing students to engage with any topic in a more collaborative and hands-on manner.
“Many pedagogical experts argue that schools should switch to teaching ‘the four Cs’ – critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. More broadly, schools should downplay technical skills and emphasise general-purpose life skills. Most important of all will be the ability to deal with change, to learn new things, and to preserve your mental balance in unfamiliar situations.” – Yuval Noah Harari, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century
Through drama activities, your learners will cultivate
