Our successful education department is in touch with over 300 international and Dutch schools nationwide. Yearly over 2000 students at primary and secondary level are involved in STET education programmes. Theatre education has proved to be a unique way of learning, gaining insights in drama techniques, storytelling, communication and most importantly learing about oneself.
Since 2013 STET Education offers workshops and performances at schools or in the theatre, and since 2016 we also have open workshops for individuals led by international performers. We highly value the direct contact with teachers, students and audience members.

 What teachers said about us:

"It has been an absolute pleasure to have STET in our school and as soon as we feel like doing something with theatre and acting again, we will certainly be in touch. Thank you for the nice experience!" (General Acting and Shakespeare Workshops, 17, 18 and 25 May 2018, B. te Flierhaar, Nuborgh College Elburg)

"The workshops were really well suited to the age group and the children had a wonderful time. All the children were engaged in the activities, and all the children could take part - even those with very little English. We are looking forward to doing some of the exercises again to help with the theme of cooperation and working together." (Tailor-made Interactive Workhsops, 5 Feb 2018, Lucy Fawcett, International School Delft)

"It was a successful workshop that motivated and inspired our students with the Robin Hood project. Your actors were friendly, fun, approachable and set the tone for an enjoyable experience.  Some students who were apprenhensive beforehand (nervous or not interested) reported that they were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it." (Tailor-made Robin Hood Workshops, 9-11 Jan 2018, Joanna Vervaat-Gosse - English teacher at OSG West Friesland, Hoorn)

"I really loved this workshop and learned a lot myself - and the students learned a lot.  I found the lessons and stories quite sophisticated and thought Year 7 was perfect but Years 8 and 9 would also benefit. Caja is brilliant and we were really fortunate to have her with us!" (Caja's Magical Storytelling, 2-11-2017, Amy Foster - English teacher at International School of The Hague)

“My students thoroughly enjoyed the performance of Macbeth by Infinite Jest.  It was pitched at a great level for secondary students with some prior knowledge of the play.  The company had adapted the play in an imaginative and creative way making the original language really come to life.  My students particularly liked the use of sound effects, puppets and some audience participation.  They were engaged throughout and had lots to say about it afterwards.  We hope we can see another performance next year!” (Infinite Jest Performance, 20-05-2016, Clare Calton -  English teacher, European School The Hague)

"We have asked our students what they thought of the performance and the workshop and they were all very positive. Even though the language was hard to follow for some of our students, they enjoyed it and they have recommended us to do things like this again with future groups." (The Taming of the Shrew Open-Air Workshop, September 2015)

"All the children loved the workshops and were full of enthusiasm for Shakespeare and English afterwards. The actors gave 100% effort and motivated and educated our students in drama and in the unique writing of Shakespeare. Many thanks!" (General Shakespeare Workshops, April 2015)

"The reactions I got from my students were: splendid, very enjoyable, entertaining, educational; some had never thought they could write a poem in English and perform it." (Devon Glover, November 2014)

"We will definitely keep up to date with your performances and would like to have something next year. Keep in touch and thank you." (The Steadfast Tin Soldier, January 2014)
