Teacher CPD

Check out our offers for Teacher CPD including our annual Drama Teacher Conference in February half term.

Drama Teacher Conference

Every February half term, the National Theatre runs the Drama Teacher Conference. This involves workshops, Q&As and sessions for drama teachers' continued professional development. In 2022, we are offering an exciting programme of work. 

The conference will take place Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16 February 2022. In light of the increasing Covid cases across the UK and the impact this has been having in schools, we have decided to move the live Drama Teacher Conference online. We apologise if this is inconvenient for you, but we hope this means more people will be able to take part safely. If you have already booked to attend the conference, we will be contacting you directly. 

We are also still offering a series of pre-recorded masterclasses which will be available from Monday 14 February to Monday 14 March. All teachers attending the live online conference will also receive access to the digital sessions. 

If you are interested in attending the new live online conference, please contact us on [email protected]
