ECT Subject Specific Enhancement DRAMA 2021-22

Next Session: November 30, 2021 | 4:00pm - 5:30pm

We are keen to ensure that all Early Career teachers have the opportunity to develop networks of subject specific enhancement to supplement their work on the Early Career Framework.  This training is open to all ECTs regardless of their ECF provider; we aim to be able to provide strong subject specific networks across our region.

The subject specific enhancement sessions for Drama will take place as detailed below.  The method of delivery will be a combination of face-to-face and virtual meetings which will be confirmed prior to each session.
