Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning (Children & Young People)
What is the qualification?
Designed for practitioners working with children and young people outside of formal education, the Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning (Children & Young People) is an initiative of the Dance Training and Accreditation Partnership (DTAP), led by Youth Dance England. It awards 90 credits at Level 6 on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF), which is a comparable level to a BA (Hons) Degree.
The qualification has been designed and developed with approval and input from the dance sector for the dance sector. Yorkshire Dance is excited that this qualification is vocational: strongly rooted in the practice of dance teaching and art of workshop leading, enabling practitioners to reflect on their expertise. It is the first qualification of its kind and, unlike some other dance qualifications, is not dance genre specific.
Yorkshire Dance is one of the first registered centres in England, working across Yorkshire to deliver the Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning (Children & Young People) and has supported candidates to undertake the qualification from September 2010. Other registered centres at this time include Trinity Laban and Swindon Dance.
