Supporting Drama and Creativity in Education

My name is Keith Burt and for nearly 20 years I have worked in Drama Education since graduating from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. For most of those years I’ve been both a Drama Teacher and a Head of Department in a variety of schools with different contexts, localities and circumstances. I’ve also worked as part of a School Improvement Team, Project Manager for Cross-Arts Education Projects and an Artistic Director of a Theatre Company. I have studied both Drama and Education and Leadership and Management in Education at Masters Level. I am an outstanding drama practitioner, a national  conference speaker, an author, School Governor, Certified Microsoft Educator and member of the executive council for National Drama.

Throughout all my experiences and different roles in my career my focus has always been on the classroom and what takes place there. I believe that teaching the Arts to young people, and working with young people through the art, is very important. I fundamentally believe in teaching the making of artistic creation and studying the art created by others makes people better people and equips them with the skills they need to make a success of themselves in whatever field of employment they go into the future.

As an experienced teacher, practitioner and consultant I provide education resources, inset, consultancy and CPD courses to help teachers and leaders in all educational settings, in the UK and overseas, to improve their arts provision and arts subjects. I offer a fantastic range of personal and bespoke support sessions that will help you make the most of your staff, your skills and your experiences, such as; developing curriculum at Key Stages 2 to 5, evidencing progress in written and practical work and outstanding Middle Leadership in the Arts.
