Who we are NIDA

Who we are

NIDA Corporate Training offers practical skills-based training in professional communication, presentation and leadership for individuals and businesses in the public and private sectors.

We draw on our expertise in performance to offer public and in-house courses, one-to-one coaching, online courses, group workshops, conference seminars and keynote speakers.

Performance experts

The National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) is Australia’s leading centre for education and training in the performing arts. The NIDA Corporate Training program gives professionals the chance to benefit from NIDA’s world-renowned training methods.

For over 60 years, we have been recognised for our practical and creative approach to dramatic arts education and training. Our higher education courses are considered some of the most prestigious in the world and our graduates achieve success on the stage, on screen and behind-the-scenes.

Experienced corporate educators

Our course managers have extensive experience working with business and government clients designing bespoke programs along with delivering workshops as tutors. Each course manager also draws on their own training as an actor and their professional expertise in the theatre, film and entertainment industries.

Specialists in our field

NIDA tutors specialise in theatre and performance education and we draw on that expertise to deliver high-quality training for professionals across a range of industries. Tutors include voice specialists, movement and body language practitioners, film and theatre directors, actors and television presenters.

Flexible and responsive to your needs

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

Supportive and feedback-focused

Our tutors do much more than deliver content. They will:

  • give you the tools and techniques to become a confident and engaging communicator
  • identify your strengths and areas for improvement
  • offer individual feedback in a safe and supportive environment.

Easy to access

We hold our regular public courses at the NIDA Campus in Kensington, Sydney and at the NIDA Studios in Southbank, 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.
