This training course is aimed at professionals working directly with young people. Participants do not need to have previous experience of drama or theatre to take part in the day.
Tender uses a very practical approach during this training to equip participants with a clear understanding of the key issues of abuse and violence in relationships and practically examines how drama techniques can be used to engage young people in these issues. These exercises have been tried and tested in a range of youth settings including schools, youth centres and pupil referral units and the training will be delivered by facilitators with a wealth of experience in delivering issue based projects.
