Drama and Employability skills course for prisoners

Drama and Employability skills course for prisoners



Imagine If Theatre Company are a charity and theatre company who use drama to make an active difference to people’s lives. They work with prisoners, former prisoners and people from disadvantaged backgrounds.


They are now taking bookings for Bird on the Wing; a 3 week, full time Drama and Employability skills course for prisoners.

Bird on the Wing uses applied theatre techniques alongside a desistance to crime framework to achieve high quality outcomes for prisoners. A performance afternoon in the third week showcases skills developed by inviting an audience of employers, agencies and support services visiting the prison, to watch a play created by participants.

The course is proven to improve confidence, communication and employability skills: 100% of participants enjoyed working with Imagine If and felt they had developed confidence, communication and team work skills and creativity. 83% felt they had improved understanding.

“A truly inspiring workshop that is so different to any I have attended before. Because of the originality of the style of the workshop, it captured the participants’ and the audiences’ imagination immediately, resulting in the best possible outcome for the most important people in the room – the participants”
– Jerry Spencer, Director HMP Doncaster
