AFTA Thought - bringing training to life

Market leaders in drama-based training for 25 years

We’ve been doing what we do for over 25 years now: AFTA Thought was formed in 1988, and we’ve been inspiring people to think differently ever since.

We’re passionate about what we do, delivering training through drama to bring issues, policies and legislation to life. And we’ve trained just shy of a million people over that period.


Our relationship with you is central to everything we do. We work with you beforehand to develop authentic scenarios and pose relevant questions your colleagues and staff will recognise and respond to.

  • our work is informed by best practice and the latest legislation and industry developments
  • we’ll tailor our sessions to match your specific experiences, so our scenarios are accessible, authentic, and leave a lasting impression
  • we’re adept at tackling sensitive issues, with thoughtful, probing scripts and experienced facilitation

Passionate, but flexible, our team is experienced enough to respond to the audience’s reaction, whilst gently guiding them through the training. Our work is renowned for its lasting impact – you can read what some of our clients say here – and measurable results.


The AFTA Thought team is made up of an accomplished, responsive group of writers, actors, facilitators, consultants and external specialists, when we need them. However specific your training issues or staff development needs, we’ll provide a realistic, accessible solution with a refreshing twist. Our flexible approach can mean that we use film, and online training resources, as well as running sessions that are ideal for large groups – from 50 – 200 (although we’ve trained groups as big as 3,500 at conferences) – making them highly cost effective.
