S2RfS Skills for Work 10 Mar 2015
A work-related speaking and listening learning programme for 15-19 year olds, which creates new localised pathways into work or training using employer-validated Open Badges.
This programme uses rehearsal room approaches and theatre making to teach Shakespeare in the primary school, and examines how this process can develop teachers' skill, confidence and ambition, and in turn impact on children's language and literacy. We will use reflective practice and action research to encourage teachers to consider how to apply their new-found approaches across their school's curriculum. The research will focus on identifying the approaches and processes that make teachers' professional development in these areas most effective, and how an action research informed approach can effectively support this.
The project will provide weekly after-school dance classes, performances and opportunities to participate in more intensive programmes for around 80 - 120 boys aged 8 - 19 from diverse backgrounds across Leeds and Bradford.
