SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP PROGRAMME
Secondary schools in Islington, Camden, Haringey, Hackney and Tower Hamlets can apply to become a Partner School to receive a year-long package of activity at a heavily subsided price.
Partnerships are designed to support schools in delivering elements of the curriculum, extend students’ knowledge and experience of current theatre practice and provide professional development opportunities for teachers.
Our Partnerships provide students and teachers with the opportunity to see and evaluate live performance, create and perform their own work, meet and learn from industry professionals and explore career pathways within the industry.
Schools can also undertake Bronze Arts Award as part of their Partnership activity.
OFFSTAGE CAREERS WORKSHOPS
Taking place at the Almeida this workshop provides students with an insight into the range of career opportunities available within the theatre.
Students will meet members of the Almeida’s Technical Team, receive a backstage tour, and find out how a show makes its’ way onto our stage by taking part in a theatre producing workshop.
This workshop is ideal for schools wishing to promote the value of a career in the creative industries to students.
WHOLE SCHOOL CPD
For schools wishing to develop a whole school cross-curricular approach to teaching drama we can develop bespoke CPD training for up to 20 members of staff. This training can take place over a half day or a full day with costs starting from £300.
ALMEIDA YOUNG ARTISTS
For students wishing to increase their engagement in the arts outside of school and further their own personal progression the Almeida offers a programme of free activity for young people aged 14 – 25.
We also take referrals from local schools for students who require bursary places to attend our Almeida Academy for 5 – 14 year olds.
