The Role

The postholder will have a primary commitment to teach acting and make an inspiring and supportive contribution to RADA’s small team of specialist acting teachers. You will plan and oversee the coordinating and teaching of some acting modules including deployment and supervision of hourly paid lecturers and visiting professionals. As a teacher-practitioner, you will lead through the example of your own teaching practice, through supporting students and new teachers, and through strong contribution to the conversations about developing the curriculum and pedagogy at RADA. You will understand how to stay ahead of industry expectations and to deliver a syllabus that underpins and nourishes the young actor in training. The methods of Michael Chekhov and Stanislavsky form the foundation of RADA’s psychophysical, text-based actor training, and we are looking for a rigorous practitioner who can complement, support and/or add to these practices.

You will contribute to the development of creative and imaginative practitioners who can inspire and be agents of change in a world of rapidly changing demographics and evolving definitions of identity. You will continue with your own development whether through staff development, undertaking HEA fellowships or your own professional practice or undertaking research and scholarship specific to developing RADA’s vision and strategic aim to create a secure, inclusive, creative, and progressive environment for teaching and learning. The Tutor in Acting will need a thorough working knowledge of 20th and 21st century acting techniques and practitioners, and a systematic teaching practice taking students through 2 years of foundational acting technique and contribute to 3rd year work.

The Team

Reporting to the Lead Tutor in Acting sits within the Tutor team, working closely with the Lead Tutor in Acting, Voice, in Movement, in Singing and with the Head of Film, TV and Audio. Collaboration and co-operation within the team is an important part of the role, enabling greater integration of practices. Tutors contribute to RADA’s organisation through membership of committees and attendance at staff forums.

We particularly want to encourage applications from candidates who are Black and Global Majority, who grew up in Low-income households and/or who are Deaf and Disabled as these groups are underrepresented within the RADA staff body. We believe that providing positive representation to all the students and groups that we serve is integral to the work that we do.

About Us

Founded in 1904, RADA has an unparalleled record of success in training some of the world’s most renowned actors and technical specialists. Ours is an impressive history on which we are building an innovative future. RADA training is not only informed by the industry but also produces graduates who take their place at the vanguard of their profession working at the cutting edge of the dramatic arts. We have an ambitious strategy to encourage students from all circumstances and backgrounds to come to RADA.

We aim to be fair and equitable and enable dialogue in a world of rapidly changing demographics and evolving definitions of identity. Through our approach to teaching, learning and wider social engagement we foreground equitable and sustainable practice in a way that sets high standards and feeds expectations for fair and considerate behaviour both in RADA and beyond. Our access and participation programme aims to remove any barriers that students from underrepresented groups may encounter.
