We believe that everyone has significant abilities which are often locked inside them. Our DROP THE ACT skills workshops are designed to tap into what’s great about you and build your practical skills. 

Since launching our original Communication Skills Workshop in 2007, Northern Stage has welcomed participants from organisations across the region, our clients ranging from high-profile companies and public bodies to SMEs and sole traders.

With our training partners, Mortal Fools, we are pleased to offer a range of skills workshops.

About our Skills Workshops

Our skills workshops utilise practices from the creative sector to support participants to identify and build on their individual strengths and attributes, develop new practical skills and aid their professional and personal development.

Our workshops encourage participants to feel, think and build practical skills through participation. There is almost no desk-based learning in our workshops and we hope it will be unlike any training you have done before. 

Whether you’re looking to develop your leadership practice, communicate more engagingly, or build resilience in your organisation, we can offer dynamic and effective approaches.

Our training is delivered by experienced facilitators, directors and creative practitioners in environments which are genuinely supportive and accessible. All our skills workshops are suitable for corporate groups or individuals.

Open, In-House and Bespoke Workshops

As well as our programme of open workshop dates throughout the year which you can book onto, organisations can book an in-house skills workshop for a staff group either at Northern Stage or your organisation's premises.

If our existing workshops don’t quite fit your needs, we can also combine elements of the existing workshops or design a bespoke workshop to meet your specific requirements.
