Theatre Education for your School

Professional theatre makers – native English speakers

Our education department is in touch with over 300 international and Dutch schools nationwide. Yearly over 2400 students at primary, secondary and university level (4 – 26 years old) are involved in STET education programmes. Our high-quality theatre workshops and performances are successful because we work with professional actors and educators who have a real passion for their work and are keen to pass on their knowledge.

Our expertise lies in providing small-group theatre workshops with real connection, safe environment and quality time to develop a mutual conversation between the group and the theatre professional(s). We highly value direct contact with teachers, students and audience members.

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

  • Theatre education is a proven 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 tools to enable them to reflect on themselves and the world around them (kerndoel 55)
      • recognise the benefits of working as a team and co-operating with others
      • learn to express themselves more clearly
      • acquire some knowledge about the 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 do better in their curriculums and in their social life outside school.
  • Students gain insight in the creative work behind our productions by understanding what motivates a professional artist to create a piece of work.
