Play In A Day

A fantastic Play in a Day project all about Aspirations and Careers- aimed at Year 8 & 9 / S9 & 10

The highly interactive nature of our Play in a Day approach means students are engaged from the very start. As they are taken step by step through the rehearsal process by their facilitator they will discover all sorts of hidden talents - allowing them to draw on and develop key skills whilst enjoying a fun and safe environment. It makes a traditionally 'dry' topic much more interesting and digestible. This physical and fast moving show will highlight concerns and perceived barriers many young people have towards learning and gaining qualifications. Looking at 'laddish' behaviour and then de-bunking it. From our being bombarded with unattainable media images and peer/fiscal pressure, through to self-esteem and other motivational issues, this process will lead to a performance promoting several key aspirational themes.

Core values and themes will include independent decision making, sticking with qualifications and courses and of course thinking and planning for their careers ahead. Learning styles and the flexibility and parity of progression routes too will be simply defined and used as tools for stripping away many of the perceived barriers young people hold about lifelong learning.

Working together as actors to create a fun, action-packed short performance, informing as much as it entertains, students will explore a wide range of topical issues.

Key themes:

-         the value of teamwork

-         self-expression

-         public speaking

-         confidence building

-         increased subject knowledge and awareness of key issues

This project was initially commissioned and successfully toured across the country in collaboration with Aim Higher, and is now available to book on an independent basis.
