nextstage

A drama project that helps participants develop their aims for their own 'next stage' - whether this is in employment or education. Aimed at young people with autism and/or moderate learning difficulties, SEBD or mental health issues, sessions use Drama exercises to improve soft skills such as communication, meta-cognition, confidence and teamwork. 

Each project includes a trip to a West End theatre production, inspiration visit to theatre-related place of work in central London and a communication skills workshop in central London.

“The exercises and the activities were brilliant. The students forgot that they were learning, they were just showing off what they can do.”

Teacher, Bromley College, 2019
