Student Profile(s)

Karen Leadbeater, Graduated 2017, currently a drama teacher.

The course provided a platform for me to engage with progressive and thought provoking perspectives. I have loved being part of the Central community and will be ever grateful for the new perspectives that have illuminated the drama education work I do with young people.
