‘Drama for Thought, Talk and Writing’ is still underway in the East of England with various school hubs. I am currently working with partnerships of schools in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.
After the initial, full training day, I go to each school and lead a class Drama lesson, with the class teacher working alongside me. My second visit is to work alongside the class teacher in a Drama lesson that they lead. We all get together for a planning meeting during the project and an evaluation meeting at the end.
Groups of schools, interested in being part of a new DTTW hub in 2016-17, are welcome to email me at email@example.com

Prior to this, I was President of the International Drama Theatre and Education Association (IDEA) from 2010-13 and was Chair of National Drama (UK's leading professional association of Drama Teachers and Theatre Educators) for more than a decade (until November 2014). I was a Local Authority Arts Adviser for 11 years (from 2000) and a School Improvement Partner and Ofsted Inspector concurrently. I also led a successful local authority Music Service through change, from 2000 to 2002.
I am a professional writer and was a BBC Education Series Consultant and Scriptwriter. I also have published several books for teachers on teaching across the curriculum using 'Drama for Learning'.
I currently work internationally and in the UK, where I am the owner of 'Inspiring Professional Development and School Improvement', providing courses and conferences for schools on many subjects and issues.
