Half Moon, in partnership with Tower Hamlets Arts and Education Service (THAMES), is offering a further programme of Continuing Professional Development for all school staff (teachers, TAs, Learning Mentors etc.) in educational settings.
This programme offers a series of practical sessions delivered by theatre and drama professionals and in partnership with Tower Hamlets Drama AST, Julia Williams. These sessions aim to extend the quality and breadth of drama being used within the core curriculum, as distinct subject delivery and as a tool for cross-curricular work or effective classroom management. This programme aims to address school development plans and provide specific training for teachers as identified in on-going appraisal within the performance review process.
