The course provides a solid foundation for teachers considering the Trinity CertPT in Teaching Soft Skills with Drama.

Helping your learners to master soft skills will open opportunities for their future study, work, and everyday life. 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 

  • Self-confidence
  • Creativity and imagination
  • Emotional intelligence and empathy
  • Cooperation, collaboration, and new friendships
  • Concentration
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication skills
  • Problem solving 

all while having lots of fun!


Is this the right course for you?

This course is for you if

  • You are new to drama.
  • You want a practical introduction to help you confidently use drama pedagogy to support your students' learning.
  • You want to create engaging resources, activities and lessons for your students using drama and play-based learning.

This course might not be for you if

  • You already have experience using drama in the classroom.
  • You need an accredited qualification.
  • You want teaching practice and personalised feedback.

Our typical trainees include

  • Experienced teachers looking to bring drama (the good kind) into their classroom for the first time. 
  • Language schools looking to transition to an arts-focused programme.  

Not all teachers have drama experience, and the thought of integrating drama methods into teaching may seem daunting. However, incorporating drama into the classroom does not have to be through extravagant teaching plans or large-scale performances. Sometimes, even the smallest activities can make a huge impact.
