Introduction to Teaching for LAMDA Exams

Our Introduction to Teaching for LAMDA Exams offers helpful advice about setting up a small drama teaching business. We will cover the whole process of entering students for LAMDA exams. We will also break down and simplify the LAMDA exams syllabus, which can be difficult to decipher. For this course we will be referring to the BRAND NEW syllabus that will be used to assess LAMDA exams from 1st August 2019 until 31st July 2024. The course is ideal for teachers who are new to teaching for LAMDA exams.

The workshop covers the following areas:

Preparing students for LAMDA exams

  • An overview of the levels, grades and subject areas
  • Precisely what needs to be prepared for each subject and grade
  • Deciding which exams to enter your students for
  • How much preparation time to allow each student


  • How to get yourself DBS-checked
  • How to get yourself insured
  • How to get yourself trained in First Aid
  • How many children to have in a group and how much to charge
  • How to set yourself up as a Private LAMDA Centre

Changeover to the New LAMDA Exams Syllabus


Every five years, there is a comprehensive update to the LAMDA Examinations Syllabus. In Spring 2019, LAMDA will publish new exam specifications, as well as new anthologies of set pieces for Acting exams and for Verse and Prose exams. These new materials come into force for all examinations from 1st August 2019. This course takes a close look at all the new materials. We will identify and explore all changes from the current syllabus and discuss the implications of these changes for teachers.

During this workshop, we will:

  • Thoroughly explore the 2019 specifications to identify what has changed
  • Discuss the pitfalls teachers must avoid when moving to the new specifications
  • Work through the new anthologies and share ideas for delivering lively, engaging classes around the new pieces.

This workshop is ideal for current LAMDA teachers who are familiar with the 2014–2019 Syllabus.

If you would like to attend one of the sessions above but are unable to make the date, we also offer correspondence courses and telephone consultations. Please contact us for details.
