Experience NIDA


Our track record

For more than 50 years, the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) has been recognised as a leader in performing arts education with world-class facilities, prestigious training programs and a legacy that includes generations of actors, directors and production professionals who have found success around the world.

Performance for professional success

NIDA Corporate draws on the actor’s toolkit to deliver practical skills-based training for individuals and businesses in the public and private sectors.

Courses cover professional communication, staff engagement, presenting and public speaking, with techniques drawn from NIDA’s world-renowned performing arts teaching methodologies.

At the core of all our training is:

  • physical and vocal presence
  • effective interpersonal communication
  • confidence when speaking in public.

Practical and personal training

NIDA’s training is activity-based, giving our tutors the opportunity to offer structured feedback, guidance and direction to individual participants. Key learning outcomes are designed for each training session and tutors identify follow-up activities to support participants in their ongoing improvement.

Designed to fit your needs

Our clients come from all sectors, including industries such as financial services, pharmaceutical, law, construction, engineering, mining, energy, retail and education.

To ensure our courses are as relevant as possible, there are a number of ways to engage in NIDA’s Corporate training programs, including public and in-house courses, customised group workshops, conference seminars and one-to-one coaching.

If you are looking for customised training for your organisation, or for a specific event, a course manager will work closely with you to design and develop a program to suit your needs.

World-class facilities

We hold our regular public courses at the NIDA Theatres complex in Kensington, Sydney and at the Malthouse Theatre at Southbank in Melbourne.

For customised training, our flexible delivery options enable us to host your training at our main campus in Kensington, Sydney, or we can visit your organisation or a venue of your choice. Our courses are available nationally and internationally.
