Teacher Professional Development

Learn, share, ignite, inspire...bring Shakespeare to life in the classroom with our transformative CPD opportunities

Do it on your feet. See it Live. Start it Earlier – this is our proven approach to getting the most out of Shakespeare. 

Through working with the text in the same way that RSC actors do in a professional rehearsal room, our innovative CPD opportunities support teachers to develop their own confidence and skills, as well as inspire children and young people.
