'Now a teacher educator in Drama, I¹ve been a member of London Drama since I was a student teacher. London Drama has not only been a source of ideas and inspiration for teaching and learning drama, I have always felt supported by being a member of a vibrant and convivial community of drama teachers. This sense of community among people of all ages and backgrounds is more important now than ever before.'
Anton Franks, (PGCE Course Leader, Institute of Education)
'During my initial teacher training year London Drama has supported me, provided a constant link to the professional community of Drama within education. Their workshops I have attended have been exciting, informative and very well priced, these have helped me form many different ideas for my lessons. The monthly newsletter has kept me up to date with the community of Drama within the capital and I look forward to working with them in NQT year towards my Professional Development. The community provides a gateway to meeting colleagues and practitioners. I recommend any one involved in Drama or Education to join!'
Nyazi Unugur (PGCE Drama Student, Goldsmiths College)
'Becoming a member of London Drama has enabled me to continue the research and teaching work as an alumni of Central School of Speech and Drama while developing and improving my practice, ensuring that my teaching and involvement in Performing Arts continues being informed and relevant to the current cultural evolution.'
