I was recently invited to write an information piece, explaining ways in which I have worked with Drama in the EU.
I have worked in 11 countries in the EU with teachers, actors and academics and have participated in several EU funded arts projects, many conferences and several IDEA Europe meetings.
Professionally, my work in Europe has resulted in some strong partnerships and lasting friendships. I am unhappy that the UK has decided to leave the EU.
Asa from Iceland.
Alice from Poland.
I am owner of 'Inspiring Professional Development and School Improvement'. 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. I also continue to develop and deliver my own drama courses in schools across the UK and abroad, as well as being an invited lecturer at several universities.
