Creative approaches to learning
We have worked with staff teams from many different organisations. People love working with us because our training is creative, fun, practical and very memorable. Our customers can also be confident that the money they invest in training from Face Up Theatre will go back into supporting our work with disenfranchised people in community settings. This is great for you Corporate Social Responsibility and great for the children and adults we work with.
A Creative Approach
Our training helps individuals and organisations develop creative approaches to problem solving. We have worked with City Councils, Schools, Business, Police, Fire Service and Mental Health Staff.
Theres often a lot of talk about creative thinking, however creativity doesn’t work in isolation, it is a practical, physical and mental process. Imagine the writer sitting in front of their laptop desperately searching for inspiration. Nothing comes. To think differently we need to do differently. Our training invites people to get up on their feet and physically move away from the problem, re set the context and approach it from a different angle.
"The best training I have been on"
“Very useful insight into the management of behaviour and having difficult conversations with colleagues.”
“Excellent Training – Love how role play was used so effectively. Really brought up things I wouldn’t have thought of.” Comments from Nottingham City Council Employees

The day is a combination of theory and practice. We have delivered this specific training to hundreds of individuals in both public and private sector organisations in the east midlands and nationaly.
The learning aims for the day are to
