Student & Teacher Workshops

Our State Educate program includes a wide variety of workshops for both students and teachers.

We run bespoke, on-demand student workshops tailored to the needs of your class and held at your school. We work with industry-leading artists to create workshops on topics from script writing and acting technique, to direction and technical production. We draw on a wide pool of talented professional artists and are happy to talk about any workshop topic ideas you might have for your classroom.

Teacher workshops are held throughout the school year on a variety of topics. These workshops are suitable for Drama, English, Dance, Creative Arts or Physical Education teachers of all year levels and count towards teacher Professional Development hours. Education students, new teachers and seasoned educators are all welcome to attend.
