Mbali Workshop

What are the subjects that Mbali workshops can help with?

I will work with you to find out what issues are important for your school, then I will deliver workshops that fit your needs and timetable. I may need to explore opportunities for bringing in associates to deal with any special issues.

What is the shortest workshop you deliver?

I can come in for one lesson which would be a storytime session where I just tell the story in a way that is suitable for the age group or deliver a practical arts activity.

What else can you offer?

I can tell the story as above but put aside some time for discussion, Q&A about the issues raised, mask making, animal movement, drama. I can help the school prepare to put on a performance of Mbali .

What is the cost?

Storytime workshops are £60, half days are £130 and full days are £250, plus travel over 10 miles from Ottery St Mary and art materials. If other specialists are required we will discuss the cost.

What Key Stages can you work with?

I will work with any Key Stage that you want me to work with and workshops can be adapted to deal with the issues you wish to look at. Mbali has many different layers in the story, from the basic story about animals though to in depth exploration of serious mental health issues.

Will I need to prepare anything beforehand? 

If the workshop is part of an ongoing project you may have materials you are using already, if you need anything specific please discuss this with Clive at the onset.

What class size can you work with? 

I am happy to work with a full class up to 30 – 35 young people, and I am also happy to work with a small group if this is required.

Are you covered by DBS and insurance?

Yes, I have an enhanced DBS certificate and public/professional liability insurance.

What else do we need to know?

The venue needs to be wheelchair accessible, support from teachers or learning assistants is required and information about any specific issues is very helpful.

Whereabouts can you run workshops?

Within about an hour of Ottery St Mary – the farthest towns would be Torbay, Okehampton, Crediton, Tiverton, Taunton, Yeovil, Bridport.
