The Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning (Children and Young People) is the first qualification of its kind, designed for practitioners working with children and young people outside formal education. It has been developed at the request of the major national dance organisations and led by Youth Dance England on behalf of Dance Training and Accreditation Partnership (DTAP) – a consortium of leading dance industry agencies, committed to building capacity and removing barriers to participation in dance outside of formal education, by people of all ages and abilities.
DDTAL (CYP) provides evidence to employers and parents/carers that a dance practitioner has the expertise to teach children and young people. It is relevant and accessible, covers continuing professional development and has 90 credits at Level 6 of the National Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).
Youth Dance England are hosting a FREE Event for Dance Artists, Employers and Organisations where, for the first time, candidates who have taken the Diploma, and organisations who provide training or employ DDTAL graduates, will share their experiences firsthand. For more details click here.
