Training opportunities with Bamboozle


Bamboozle Workshop

A one day workshop for creative practitioners and teachers working with young people on the autistic spectrum.

Date: 05 October 2018

Venue: The Hullabaloo, Darlington

Delivered by one of Bamboozle’s lead artists, this day long workshop will introduce teachers and creative practitioners to the approach and techniques the company uses. Whether you are trying to help an individual child with extremely challenging behaviour to stay in a room, work with others and contribute their own ideas; supporting whole families to connect and play together; or seeking to effect attitudes and practice at a whole school level, this day will provide both practical ideas and inspiration. Although the workshop will particularly reference working with children who have learning difficulties, the Bamboozle Approach is equally applicable to non-disabled students.

Everyone who attends the workshop should see the performance of Storm at The Hullabaloo at 4.30pm on either Wednesday 03 October or Thursday 04 October.

For more details, please visit Theatre Hullabaloo’s webpage HERE. Bookings are made directly with Theatre Hullabaloo.
Booking fee: £80 – £120

Bamboozle Approach Training, Autumn 2018

A two-day course in how to engage students who have learning disabilities* and keep them interested.

Date: 10 – 11 October 2018

Venue: Bamboozle HQ, Leicester

Today has completely altered my outlook on how we communicate/educate children in terms of value judgements. SUCH a thought-provoking day which has boggled my mind and challenged me hugely.
The day was full of inspiration.  I have realised how much of my practice was influenced by Bamboozle from their last visit.  Challenging ideas, creating debate and reflection.  Invigorating day!

This two-day course will explore key elements of the methodology that has been developed by Bamboozle’s Co-founder and Artistic Director, Christopher Davies, for working and interacting with children and young people who have learning disabilities. (*The course will particularly reference working with students who have learning disabilities, but is also relevant to non-disabled students).
This training is best completed across the two days, as each day focuses on different elements of the Bamboozle Approach, however, if you are not able to attend both days, it is possible to sign up for just one of the days and still benefit.

“The training week with Bamboozle was amazing. In this industry I often find myself drowned by having to work in a million places at once, mixing with teachers and pupils for just a couple of minutes before reeling off the same stale old workshop. I can’t tell you how much this week has helped me … it has changed my approach to my students and has re-lit the fire for teaching again … that is priceless.” Arjunan Manuelpilla – workshop leader and poet, London.
