Schools

The History Troupe has roots in local hidden histories and across the community. Our work in schools gathers momentum as delivery partners for The University of Hull and FORCE within the NCOP (National Collaborative Outreach Programme) http://force-higher.co.uk/

This widening participation initiative sees THT offering talks, lesson, workshops and seminars across the curriculum for key stage 3, 4 & 5.

THT sees widening participation as inclusive of family and students. For this reason THT incorporates a touring programme of plays and performances as well as Heritage Exhibitions and Employability Fairs  across some of the best school facilities in the country.

THT content is supplemented on stage by Drama from the core curriculum. For example,  ahead of 2017-18 Sally Evans Witts (THT Programme Advisor) and Tarin Puckering (THT Programme Coordinator) are selecting plays to tour from the following list, A Taste Of Honey (Shelagh Delaney ), An Inspector Calls (J.B. Priestley), DNA (Dennis Kelly), Blood Brothers (Willy Russell), A Doll’s House (Henrik Ibsen) and a Death of a Salesman (Arthur Miller).

BREAKING NEWS. Feedback from head teachers, firms and across the community highlights the need for more focus on employability. This means working with students on awareness of the job market and qualifications needed, with an emphasis on building self confidence, critical thinking, problem solving and team work. These vital attributes must grow from a platform of digital and functional literacy for all students irrespective of their career journey.

To make this happen THT is partnering a number of international digital players  and educators to launch sister company 2050NOW.
