Opportunities at the Globe and in your school to continue your professional development

Continuing Professional Development


Since 1989 we have been supporting teachers to make Shakespeare accessible in the classroom. All training is designed to match the requirements of the curriculum in your region and country and will be tailored to your specific learning objectives. Or you can just have fun!

CPD Sessions can be arranged at the Globe or in your school.

We travel to your organisation to deliver bespoke training days to meet your specific needs.

Courses can be devised to meet your particular curriculum requirements and staff development needs.

Sessions can be run for selected members of staff or whole departments, or you can book our practitioners for whole school inset days.

Sessions can be tailored for teachers and trainee teachers of Key Stages 1 – 5, across a range of subjects.

Teaching strategies for the contemporary classroom

You will get to work with our staff and practitioners to explore practical, active approaches to the teaching of Shakespeare. You are given the opportunity to reflect on your progress, and to consider how your learning at the Globe might inform your classroom practice.

Creating a production for the Globe Theatre

You are immersed in the life of a working theatre. As well as attending Globe productions, you meet and work with members of the Globe theatre company responsible for design, direction, movement, music, text and voice to explore how productions at the Globe are conceived and produced.

Producing a scene

You work in groups with directors on particular scenes from the Globe repertory. Wherever possible, these are presented on the landmark Globe stage.


There is a two-tier application process. Teachers must apply through the English-Speaking Union of the United States (ESU).

The ESU will forward the selected teachers’ applications with final acceptance determined by us.
