Drama & Creative Writing in Education

Course Description

Learn to create imaginary worlds using everyday situations to tell stories and inspire your audience to explore their own environments through the power of imagination.

By studying literary texts, performance and theatre you will discover alternative perspectives and innovations, which will feed your creativity and help you to adopt the identity of a writer. You will write your own pieces and use drama to create social and emotional settings that will put children at the centre of the experience and empower them to investigate and learn for themselves.

Whether you’re already working in a school or have a first degree in a related subject and want to work with young people to enhance their creative independence, you will have the skills to be responsive to your audience whatever the setting. You could enhance your teaching practice, develop as a creative writer or work with young people through theatre or play. Alternatively you might want to use this course as preparation for one of our PGCE teacher training courses.

Course Benefits

You will be able to put your skills into practice through two placement opportunities on the course – you might already be working in a school and be able to apply your learning to new creative processes, or you could develop your expertise within theatre organisations such as the West Yorkshire Playhouse or Interplay Theatre Company.

You will be taught by a highly skilled and experienced team, including Senior Lecturer Dr Tom Dobson, a former secondary English teacher whose current research into English pedagogy focuses on the identity of the teacher as a writer. Our tutors also have links with arts organisations such as Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The Tetley and the Hepworth Wakefield, which will feed into your learning and help you to develop creatively.

In addition, you will have the chance to network with industry professionals during our guest lecture series. Previous speakers have included contemporary writers such as award-winning romantic and paranormal fiction writer Kate Johnson, and novelist and critic Professor Manju Jaidka.
