NextStage

Drama skills to support SEND Employment Preparation
in FE Colleges

NextStage uses participatory drama workshops to develop the essential skills and mindset that students need to become workplace ready. Delivered by expert drama practitioners in collaboration with college staff, the sessions are structured to complement existing programmes for SEND students, such as Supported Internships or Employment Preparation. 
 
By having the chance to unlock their creativity, stretch their imaginations and "play" in a structured way, participants' communication skills improve, their confidence and self-belief grows and staff often see their abilities in a new light.
