Drama Graduate Job

Job description

Have you studied Drama (or similar discipline) at University and are now looking for a new career?

Maybe you should consider a career in Education...

So why do drama graduates translate so well to teaching assistant and SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) roles?

The common denominators seem to be the following:

  • Bags of confidence: not afraid to get stuck in and overcome anxieties for both yourself and child
  • A huge dose of energy and enthusiasm - for some this role can be draining, especially the 1:1, intense nature that comes with it. Drama graduates seem to be immune to this, they're like Duracell bunnies!
  • Creative: you drama graduates are outside the box thinkers and can get students engaged through fun and creative ideas. This can break up the monotony of some academic teaching and get outstanding results!
  • Academically sound: Your Shakespeare and literature background means your English is outstanding! This works so well with academic support!
