Training to teach drama
As a drama teacher, you can help pupils discover and nurture new talents – and there’s more to that than the purely theatrical and production sides of the subject. You’ll build pupils’ confidence and improve their ability to face important life challenges such as public speaking – making drama a subject that all young people deserve to be taught to the highest standard.
What you need to know
You’ll teach a range of skills that show young people how to work together and collectively develop ideas. Your teacher training will help you to devise and deliver lessons that are engaging and richly educational, demonstrating the importance of drama and how it intertwines with other subjects.
Once you qualify, you’ll start on a salary of at least £24,373, or £30,480 in inner London; as your career progresses, so will your salary – teachers in leadership roles can earn on average £58,881, with many earning significantly more. Additionally, teaching offers access to a wealth of other benefits – from a generous pension to enjoying the flexibility of school holidays, up to 13 weeks, which are unique to the profession.
