Theatre at ISSOS

Theatre Teacher

Our Theatre Course offers students the opportunity to explore and extend their theatrical skills and talents and use them to develop a unique piece of verbatim theatre with aspects of physical theatre. The Theatre Teacher will combine a series of skill-based master classes and ensemble workshops in which students will work as a team to create an exciting piece of original theatre to be performed in the final week. The course should enthuse all students with a keen interest in the performing arts regardless of previous experience and will encourage students to discover their talents and develop a new-found self-confidence both on the stage and beyond.

The Theatre teacher will teach a class of students aged 13-18 years old from a variety of nationalities for three hours a day, four afternoons a week. The teacher will work with the students to produce a piece of devised work that will take the form of verbatim theatre.

Although we provide every teacher a guide as to what each lesson should achieve, we encourage teachers to bring their own experience and personality to each class and create their own stimulating and challenging lesson plans.

ISSOS is looking for charismatic, inspirational individuals who are experienced in their field and have experience in leading, motivating and encouraging a group of young people.
