Want to teach?

Our excellent teachers – their passion, skill and professionalism – are at the heart of Perform’s success. 

We set up Perform to offer a new kind of drama class to young children. But our teachers make that vision a reality which is why we are 100% committed to our recruitment and training process.

At Perform, we only hire the best people and give them the training they need to do a great job. We train all our teachers before they begin working for us and we continue to offer training to constantly develop their skills.

Who are Perform teachers?

Perform teachers are working actors, singers and dancers with a professional qualification (drama school/university degree) in the performing arts. They must be all-rounders and able to act, sing and dance brilliantly.

Not only does a Perform teacher have to be multi-talented, they must also have a passion for teaching children and helping them develop the 4 Cs - confidence, concentration, communication and coordination. Having these skills themselves, Perform teachers can be a powerful inspiring influence in a child's life.

What about acting jobs?

Most of our staff attend regular auditions and go off to do acting jobs from time to time. However our teachers never think of their work as "a bit of teaching to pay the bills". For them, working at Perform is a passion and our feedback is that they find the job rewarding, challenging but above all the best fun that they have all week too!

Some teachers work six days a week while others work for as little as two hours. This can be regular work, intensive courses or just occasional work when you have availability. We need teachers to lead weekly workshops, birthday parties, holiday courses and educational workshops in schools.

How do I become a Perform teacher?

If you have a 3 year qualification in drama, dance or singing, you'll need to attend one of our monthly group auditions.

To arrange this, please email your CV, headshot and covering letter to [email protected]

If we think that you are right for Perform, we will contact you to invite you to the next monthly group audition.

If you are successful at the audition, we will check your CRB and references then put you on our teacher training programme. Once you are a regular teacher for us we will provide Refining Trainings to help improve and perfect your teaching skills.

What parents say about Perform teachers

I think it's really professionally run and I love the communication with parents - I really feel as though I know what's going on in the classes. Most importantly of all, my daughter ADORES her classes and wants to do them every day! Could not be happier.

– Mrs Elisabeth Rushton

Annabelle is great - she is extremely professional and seems very interested in maximizing Claudio's experience with Perform.

– Mrs Louise Derbes

Matt and Becky are amazing ambassadors for Perform ....the security they provide around the room and the quality of teaching is outstanding. A complete privilege that Sophia's little life is being influenced by such special people. Thank you.

– Ms Anna Mcnally

I am a primary teacher myself so I can probably spot things other wouldn’t about the teaching. The enthusiasm of Kate and the other teachers is magnetic and encourages the children - even the less confident ones to relax and feel comfortable joining in. Heidi is loving the class.

– Ms Jenny Mcgarry

Katie is fantastic! So rare to find an educational, well-taught class that’s so much fun. We’re so happy we found you, Perform!

– Mrs Tallie Westgate

Jessica is a warm enthusiastic person and Alexander loves attending Perform.

– Mrs Dorota Chwiedosik

Lucy is great. Full of enthusiasm and a desire to please both children and parents alike.

– Mrs Lucy O'Neil

In addition, I'm really impressed by the topics covered- such as how to stand up for yourself if being bullied. Great practical skills that they can apply to real life.

– Christina Al-Hasso

She loves it! She's full of enthusiasm after each session and she really looks forward to the next one. Hannah is so professional and accommodating, and she has a great way with the kids. We've signed up for a half term course too!

– Ms Jen Moore

Our boy can't wait to go to his class every week, he loves it! Sarah, the producer, is very good at communicating what's going on and making everyone feel welcome and included.

– Mrs Lida Charsouli
