Toolkits

Welcome to WACI Toolkits, our resources that we hope will inspire, inform and empower people interested in learning new skills in the performing and production arts.

Designed for young people, teachers and community groups in the West of Scotland, they can be used either in a school or community group setting or at home.

The resources are designed so that they are accessible for a wide range of ages and stages that can be viewed on a variety of devices. There will also be a range of CPD resources for teachers with each toolkit providing a combination of content from video tutorials to downloadable printable packs to audio transcriptions.
