Blue Teapot Performing Arts School is an accredited provider of training for people aged 18 and over with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities. Founded in 2010, it was specifically set up to address the needs of those learners who want to gain formal training and certification in QQI creative modules.
Research showed us that, traditionally, learners with an intellectual disability don’t attend conventional theatre schools in Ireland. We recognised the need for this provision to be made available.
In addition to our performance arts school programme, we are developing a new Life Skills Training. The modules will focus on interpersonal skills, healthy lifestyle & fitness, online safety, QQI Level 3 Communications and Level 2 Non Verbal Communication.
Our tutors are all subject matter experts with a wealth of experience in creative arts. We are privileged to work with some of the very best in Ireland in their own careers – directors, playwrights, actors, artists and musicians.
The school’s ethos is to give all our students a quality arts experience of equal importance to that of achieving required learning outcomes.
