EDUCATING FOR THE FUTURE
An ongoing goal is our education programme and outreach, which we believe follows greatly in Coward's footsteps, supporting a cause that he himself would have endorsed.
When Private Lives was introduced to the OCR AS-Level syllabus, the Noël Coward Estate funded and supplied the resource pack for teachers and students studying the text. As a result, further people were introduced to Coward’s works, which opened a door for NCAT to take on similar projects in the future to support educational establishments in their teaching of Coward.
As such, NCAT are continuing to support these educational needs and requirements, by encouraging and supporting those performing or writing about Noël Coward works, boosting training and education about Coward and the world he inhabited, volunteering support work with writers and theatre professionals, and providing bespoke resources and workshops to schools and other educational organisations. In order to gain further engagement from teachers and students, a strong and ongoing education marketing campaign will also be put in place by NCAT to encourage interaction with the archive and raise awareness of Coward as a culturally significant artist.
