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

Jamie always comes out smiling, telling us how much fun he’s had. This is perfect for our son and Charlotte is not only really engaging for him, she’s such a positive and dedicated teacher which I think reflects in the children.

– Mrs Ruth Evans

I've been extremely impressed by the personal interest in each child and the quality of the content. Stella has already grown in confidence in just 4 weeks.

– Lauren Seager-Smith

I am so grateful to Rhia for her excellent work. I had a positive call from my daughter's teacher, who had noticed her new found confidence since starting Perform.

– Miss Drea Daley

Hollie is terrific and Jasper adores her! She is really bringing a lot out of him, pretty impressive given he knows no others in the class. Happy boy, happy parents. Thank you

– Mrs Joy Nazzari

This is the perfect class for my daughter. It is a wonderful nurturing place where she can truly express herself. 

– Ms Rebecca Wood

Callum is so passionate about the children in his group. Archie literally bounces with confidence all the way back to the car. It's so lovely to see. Thank you Perform for such a winning formula!

– Lexie Tough

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

– Mrs Dorota Chwiedosik

The classes are amazing and so beneficial to children's development. Aled is absolutely fabulous and great with kids. He makes me want to join the classes!

– Miss Jana Marsova

Kate has been so inspirational. I had no idea my child was able to learn so many songs in such a short amount of time. She loves it! It’s not the closest class to me but she has friends there and we wanted Kate to be our teacher, so it works for us.

– Mrs Clare Ronai

Jessica seems fantastic - boundless energy with the kids and very professional and responsive to parents. Imogen is really enjoying the classes so far.
