About the course

Gain the skills and knowledge as a teacher (new or current) to use the LAMDA Communication syllabi at Entry Level and Level 1 (Speaking Verse and Prose, Speaking in Public, Reading for Performance, Solo Introductory and Group Introductory examinations, Group Recital and Choral Speaking examinations).

The course runs over five days and is delivered by a trained facilitator, combining both theory and practice. You will also be encouraged to explore your own skills and learn from other delegates.

On the sixth day you will complete an assessment with a LAMDA Examiner, which you will have been working towards throughout the course.

“Thank you for all your efforts, patience, kindness and amazing knowledge this week. I’ve taken so much from all your advice and it’s been a delight working with you."

“Thank you for a great week. I’ve had a ball!”
