Course summary

Course Details

Create fictional worlds and use everyday situations to tell stories through the mediums of drama and creative writing in order to inspire young people, spark their imaginations and aid their social and emotional development. By studying literary texts, performance pedagogy and theatre in education, you will develop innovative approaches to the teaching of drama and creative writing in a range of educational and community settings. You will challenge young learners to create powerful and transformative imaginary worlds to spark their creativity. This course will help you to become a creative educator, who places students at the centre of their learning through the creation of lived-through drama experiences, cultivating a fertile ground for your creative writing and a supportive environment in which young people will feel encouraged to also write creatively. Working with an experienced team of published educators and theatre-based organisations in Leeds, you will develop the confidence and skills to work with and inspire young people.

Course Benefits

You will be able to put your skills into practice through two placement opportunities on the course - you might already be working in a school and be able to apply your learning to new creative processes, or you could develop your expertise within theatre organisations such as the West Yorkshire Playhouse or Interplay Theatre Company. You will be taught by a highly skilled and experienced team, including Senior Lecturer Dr Tom Dobson, a former secondary English teacher whose current research into English pedagogy focuses on the identity of the teacher as a writer. Our tutors also have links with arts organisations such as Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Kirkstall Abbey Museum and Leeds Art Gallery, as well as a range of community theatre groups, which will feed into your learning and help you to develop creatively.
