Drama based training

Drama based training is effective in producing genuine and measurable behaviour change. It improves performance at an individual and team level. It brings theory to life. Using drama allows delegates to see the theory in action, in situations that they recognise from their own working lives. They even get to affect the outcome and practice the skills themselves.

Drama based training provides powerful learning experiences because the skills being learned are shown in recognisable situations. We research scenarios that are realistic and are happening today, in your organisation – creating real impact.

Drama based training can be used at 3 levels:

  1. Awareness raising

Drama has a powerful way of challenging existing beliefs and attitudes. This is the first step towards behavioural change. Sessions can be for small or large groups and can even be slotted into your conference.

  1. Learning skills

This level of training goes deeper and looks at the skills needed to affect a change. Skills can be demonstrated and explored quickly and effectively using drama based training. Sessions are usually for smaller groups, allowing greater individual interaction.

  1. Embedding skills

To really equip your people to make behavioural change they need a chance to practice their skills in a safe environment. Drama based training provides exactly that opportunity. This depth of training is carried out in small groups so that people get individual attention and feedback.

Our drama based training is completely bespoke, developed to your company’s needs. Unfortunately we do not offer open courses.
