How to teach LAMDA Examinations

Although you do not require any specific training or qualifications to teach Learners and prepare them for LAMDA Examinations, people new to teaching are very strongly advised to complete the LAMDA Diploma in Speech and Drama Education (LSDE) or the LAMDA Certificate in Speech and Drama: Performance Studies (PCertLAM). You can find out more information about these qualifications hereThe PCertLAM is not a formal teaching qualification, but a useful introduction to delivering LAMDA qualifications in speech and drama.

All the subject requirements for LAMDA Examinations are detailed in the individual syllabuses which you can download or purchase online, but we leave the specific teaching approach and timeline up to you and your learners. However, we must emphasise that familiarity with the syllabus is a pre-requisite to successful preparation for examination. Learners can be invalidated, for example, if they present the wrong pieces for the Level they are studying; or fail if they do not meet all of the assessment criteria for the qualification they are studying.

We also have a Directory of LAMDA Teachers which represents a list of those wishing to advertise the fact that they are preparing learners for LAMDA examinations. You can purchase a Directory of LAMDA Teachers membership by visiting our online store.

PLEASE NOTE: Teachers on the Directory are not employed by LAMDA and are therefore not endorsed by LAMDA in any way.
