Diploma in Dance Education

The Diploma In Dance Education is the second stage of the ISTD teaching ladder, and enables the holder to enter children for examinations. All 5 units can be completed through ourselves on the part-time or full-time courses and can also be undertaken as a distance learning course if necessary with occasional visits to the centre.

The Units are:-

  • Unit 1 - Lesson planning & Evaluations (written/tutorials). These can be based on classes that you currently teach or classes provided by the centre. Tutorial discussions need to take place regularly.
  • Unit 2 - Teaching practice (practical). This requires completion of 10 hours of teaching practice, some of which is observed and assessed by both your tutor and an external assessor.
  • Unit 3 - Lifespan Development in Dance.  Completion of tasks and written exam.
  • Unit 4 - Dance Practice Unit.
  • Unit 5 - Background assignment.
