This is a free course but requiring an “honesty deposit” which you hold on to.  It is very important that all participants do complete the course.  We anticipate the demand will be greater than the number of places and so it is important that no place is left unfilled by the end of the course.


So we are asking you to set aside €50 as a deposit but hang on to it and return it to yourself at the end! This is to emphasise the importance of commitment to all 5 days!


There will be other goodies to follow as well, including a voucher towards the 2021 live course in Devon. Also a copy of the wonderful “Hands Up Project” book  “Welcome to Earth and other stories” - a collection of 30 of the best 5 minute plays that were created and performed by Palestinian young people as part of the 2019 HandsUp Project play writing competition (30 texts and QR code links to the videos).


Nick Bilbrough is a teacher, teacher-trainer and author of resource books for teachers. He has taught and trained language teachers in many diverse contexts in Africa, the Middle East, South America and Europe. He is also the founder and coordinator of the award-winning UK registered charity, The Hands Up Project, which provides learning opportunities for young people, mostly in Palestine, through online conversation, storytelling and drama activities.
