Learning through Shakespeare

Learning, leading to understanding, is the most important phase of our development process:

 "Our research has much to offer, not just in adding to the pool of knowledge of Shakespeare and his works but, more importantly, to our understanding of the real contribution he has, and still is, making to our understanding of who we are."

In keeping with our alternative approach to everything we do, our approach to Shakespeare through alternativeLearning is based around;

  • Understanding traditional education methods and approaches, and then accepting, adapting or rejecting them to meet our own learning aspirations and style

  • Placing the focus and emphasis on a self-led learning process, with people learning for themselves and from each other rather than being "educated"

  • Accepting that there are many ways of learning - whether that's alone or together

  • Working towards our ultimate goal, which is to help each one of us better understand and then develop both ourselves and the world around us

Our AlternativeShakespeare learning programme has several objectives:

Coming to terms with the world


  • Political situations 

  • Changes in Society

  • Digital revolution

  • Social Media

  • Global themes

  • Our identity as individuals

Developing ourselves

  • Our psychology

  • Drivers

  • Emotions

  • Relationships

  • Experiences

Understanding Shakespeare

  • Shakespeare as part of a Model of Humanity

  • Enabling his work and legacy to be a living experience

  • To undo some of the problems created in the 400 years since he wrote his plays

Using our experience, knowledge, and outputs developed over the last 20 years, a wide range of learning aids will be made available;
