Digital resource for Drama Teachers - Access to the Arts Resource Pack
It’s finally here – a one-stop shop digital toolkit and resource pack for drama teachers and students alike, Fourth Monkey’s “Access to the Arts Teachers’ Resource Pack” has launched for February 2021!
Aimed at providing insights, advice and guidance about drama school and professional actor training, we hope it will prove to be “essential reading” for Year 12 and 13 teachers as well as other mentors and coaches who are supporting students who are interested in applying to and auditioning for drama school for 2021 intake.
Covering that all-important first step into a student’s drama school journey, the first edition of the Resource Pack, “Volume #1 – Getting Started”, offers top tips for choosing the right school and training course, submitting an application and preparing for an audition, plus first-hand insights into actor training in the shape of interviews with Fourth Monkey students and alumni, and is available now via our website.
Upcoming volumes of the “Access to the Arts Resource Pack” will take a deep dive into student life at drama school and where training can take a student after they graduate – keep your eyes peeled for these volumes being launched in the coming weeks!
