MIKE Russell, Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learningwill launch the Scottish Drama Training Network and announce details of this new initiative, designed to enhance and support drama provision in Scotland’s colleges, conservatoire and universities.

Recognising of the importance of training in these area, the Scottish Funding Council pioneered the setting up of this Network to foster cohesion across stage and screen professional practice, education and training.

The Minister will outline the innovative plans for the future of Drama Training and will highlight news of the first major achievement of the Network, namely the agreement for a new BA (Hons) Acting for Stage and Screen, degree course to be delivered between Edinburgh Napier University and Queen Margaret University.

This collaboration is a first of its kind for the country and is recognised as an important step forward for acting training. But it will also have a wide reaching influence across all of the other vocational and practical areas of drama training, which include film, television, radio, contemporary performance practice, technical theatre skills and musical theatre.

Following the speeches, there will be photo opportunities with performance students from Queen Margaret University and Edinburgh Napier University.
