Resources and support
Trinity Stars: Young Performers in English Award is well resourced. We provide an essential Guide for Teachers along with a wide range of materials to support classroom and teaching practice.
Guide for Teachers
The Trinity Stars Guide for Teachers provides information about how the award works and types of award groups can be entered for. It describes language and performance goals for each award stage, along with examples of classroom activity plans. These plans have been designed to help teachers integrate performance activities into their English language classes.
Lots more classroom activity plans and resources can be found on Trinity’s online support website. While it is not a requirement to use the Trinity Stars support material to enter for the awards, we recommend visiting the online learning website to take a look at the wide range of materials available.

All group performances are watched by a Trinity Stars expert, who will interact with the learners at the end of the performance. At the end of each performance teachers are offered a reflective feedback session of up to 30 minutes.
The reflective feedback session is an opportunity for teachers to reflect on their classroom preparation and the performance itself. The session is also a chance for the Trinity Stars expert to offer feedback and suggestions on using performance in language teaching.
Teachers who take part receive a certificate for participating in the reflective feedback session with the Trinity Stars expert. Certificates are issued after the performance date.
