SDCSA is more than a professional association of qualified teachers. We aim to ensure that only qualified people teach. We are a credible and reputable resource for other educators, parents and people seeking information about speech and drama as a tool for positive development. Previously known as The South African Guild of Speech and Drama Teachers, SDCSA has been operating successfully since 1945.
The cross-curricular benefits of speech and drama are central to learning and development. Students of the subject are better equipped to become well-adjusted young adults with real world life skills: they are more confident, able to listen effectively and to express themselves more clearly. Speech and drama also improves abstract thinking, mathematical ability, literacy and social integration. This makes it one of the essential professions with interesting career opportunities in the performing arts, teaching, law, politics, journalism, broadcasting and more.
