Drama Based Training
Drama Based training uses powerful techniques such as Role Play, Business Simulation and Forum Theatre to embed learning and development.
It is a creative, engaging and inclusive methodolgy for exploring and embedding key principals around change and behaviour.
Drama based training provides a ‘safe’ way to explore conflict and subjects which are sensitive such as race relations, discrimination etc
It is widely used in GP training to examine ‘bedside manner’, in customer service training for banks, retail and many others, in sales training across all sectors and in many other scenarios.

How it Works
There are many different techniques available within the broad church of ‘drama based training’.
All the actors we use are not only professional actors but also trained facilitators with significant experience of corporate training roles and practices.
Stage 1: Discovery
We start with an in-depth research and interrogation of the key stakeholders to understand the opportunities for development and the issues. Once we understand the platform (ie conference, training day, ongoing talent programme) and the objectives we then set about the task.
Stage 2: Script Development
The success of any drama based development lies in the quality of the scripts. Once again we employ specialist and highly experienced script writers to develop short scenarios, vignettes, forum theatre scenes all involving your company’s brand, terminology, in-house humour, characters and issues.
Script development is a fine art and one which requires a realistic investment in time to get it right. It can take up to 1 full day to develop one 3 minute script.
Stage 3: Rehearsal
Prior to delivery we bring all the actors, the scriptwriters and the client sponsor or host together to rehearse the piece(s) and make sure it flows, has the right emphasis and that the actors are ready for the actual intervention
Stage 4: Delivery
The actual event is facilitated by a specialist facilitator who has both a development and drama background and can focus on the feedback and the learning objectives.
