Why has STET an education department  and why is it so successful?

  • Theatre education has proved to be a unique way of non-formal learning, gaining insights in drama techniques, storytelling, communication and most importantly learning about oneself.
  • Students learn lifelong skills through cultural education. They:
      • learn to articulate their emotions in a social situation (kerndoel 54)
      • gain self-confidence
      • develop to reflect on themselves and the world around them (kerndoel 55)
      • become able to express themselves better
      • learn (how) to cooperate with others
      • acquire some knowledge about arts and learn to appreciate it (kerndoel 56)
  • STET Education provides a supplemental education programme that reinforces English language skills in order to help students follow up better in their curriculums and in their social life outside school.
  • Students gain insight in the creative work behind our productions by understanding what it is behind and what moves a professional artist to make what they make.
