Digital Theatre Plus is delighted to announce two key partnerships which will improve the way we bring our growing resource to your institution. 

Firstly, we’re thrilled to be partnering with Pearson, the world's leading education company, to support BTEC Performing Arts qualifications. 

BTEC is the world’s most successful and best-loved applied learning brand and has been engaging learners in practical, interpersonal and thinking skills for over 25 years. BTEC qualifications offer students the skills they need to either move on to further education, higher education or go straight into employment.

This new partnership will see BTEC centres being offered specially discounted subscriptions to Digital Theatre Plus and our extensive library of productions. 

Subscriptions will also give centres access to our Making Theatre resources, which offer a backstage pass into the world of theatre. For students studying vocational BTEC qualifications, these exclusive interviews and documentaries with leading directors, actors and producers are an incredibly complementary resource. 

Don’t just take our word for it, Digital Theatre Plus recently received a five-star review from Teaching Drama.

For BTEC courses, where the links with industry are so important, I can see how this website would be invaluable - ★★★★★

We have also worked with Paul Webster, Pearson’s Subject Advisor for Performing Arts and Drama, to create a Relevance to BTEC Guide which gives insight into how you can use Digital Theatre Plus resources to support your teaching of BTEC Performing Arts, using our production of A Doll's House as an example. 

Digital Theatre Plus is offering BTEC centres a 10% discount on their subscriptions. To see if you qualify for this discount, please contact us.


Digital Theatre Plus is equally thrilled to welcome JISC Collections to our family of partners. JISC Collections supports the procurement of digital content for education and research, and from today are endorsing Digital Theatre Plus as quality resource for FE and HE institutions across the UK. 

This partnership is another seal of approval for Digital Theatre Plus, and further assures our FE and HE community that our resource is easily accessible and fairly priced.

Partnerships with Pearson and JISC Collections mark an important step forward for Digital Theatre Plus, our community of educators and - most importantly - your students.
