CASE STUDIES

There are many different ways which roleplay can be used in the training room and the assessment arena – have a look at some of our most recent case studies.

Forum Theatre & Role Play

Culture & Diversity

University of Bedfordhsire

Our client needed to challenge a long-standing culture of discrimination and bullying, and chose to tackle this by running a series of Diversity awareness courses. Using story telling and interactive forum theatre techniques with a larger group of participants, our roleplayers portrayed a variety of situations and characters during the course of the day, working with a trainer facilitator to bring the interactions to life and pausing the action to allow the audience to comment, share experience, direct the action and begin to resolve the situation in a fair and empathetic manner.

The benefit of using roleplayers in events with sensitive, emotional or controversial subjects and characters, is that there is an opportunity for the group to witness and experience first hand the impact of behaviours and language that are often normally hidden from public view, without having to physically take part in the situation.

The actors took the task seriously, - considered, reflected and discussed the issues with us and each other and fully engaged with their role. It was a very positive experience for us and provided an excellent way of assessing candidates' potential for social work training.
