Sessions for teachers. 

For busy people who have a million other things to get through and maybe limited specialist knowledge in this ever-changing field, Andy can support your work too. This could be one-to-one or part of INSET for a group of drama teachers from several schools. It could run adjacent to a student session.

  • Application tactics to maximise student success and minimise stress.
  • References
  • How to access, with ease, up-to-the-minute gems of info and knowledge on what each school is looking for.
  • What happens at each audition. How many candidates attended.  How many people on the panel. The nature of the interview.
  • The psychology of it. How to get the best from your students.  How to support them through what can be a lengthy campaign and keep them positive while working for their dream.
