Becoming a New Era teacher
New Era is currently contacting teachers across France and Monaco to determine interest in preparing exams. We are targeting Drama, English or French teachers, or individuals who could prepare learners for the New Era bilingual exams.
The type of exams includes:
- Devising Drama
- Musical Theatre
- Reading for performance
- Speaking Verse and Prose
- Public Speaking
Currently there are five exam centres in France and Monaco. Examiners travel from the UK bi-annually to administer our exams. Local teachers prepare exams as part of their school curriculum or during private lessons. New Era qualifications current earn UCAS (University and Colleges Admissions Service) points.
New Era Training
Teachers do not require any specific training or qualifications to teach New Era examinations. Similarly, we don’t dictate how you approach the teaching. All the subject requirements are detailed in the individual syllabuses which you can download from the New Era website
We provide our own tailor made Teacher Training Courses.
These course are designed to help teachers develop skills to prepare learners for New ERA Exams. The courses can be taken individually or consecutively over a number of days:
