Tallaght Community School



Tenderfoot is The Civic Theatre, Tallaght’s apprentice theatre programme for second level students. Each year, Tenderfoot offers fifty Transition Year students from schools in South Dublin County the opportunity to learn about theatre by making theatre. Established in 2007 in collaboration with South Dublin County Council Arts Office and Veronica Coburn as theatre artist-in-residence, the programme is now in its thirteenth year.

Tallaght community school has been involved with the Tenderfoot programme since its creation, each year following an audition, 6 TY students are selected to participate in the programme. This involves students writing and producing their own plays then performing this work to their peers and the public.

Tenderfoot has always worked in close collaboration with schools, aligning with Transition Year and its broader approach to curriculum. Transition Year offers students the possibility to try new activities and explore different ways of learning, with an emphasis on experiencing real world work environments. Utilising a model of apprenticeship, Tenderfoot provides a space where young people can actively learn about theatre by working alongside professional playwrights and theatre artists.
