Level 5 CPD Courses
Would you like to increase your knowledge as a dance teacher and continue your professional development (CPD)? Have you considered enrolling upon the ISTD Level 6 Diploma in Dance Pedagogy (DDP) but would prefer to ‘test the water’ before diving right in? If so - read on!
The ISTD is delighted to offer members a brand new opportunity to study a percentage of the Level 6 DDP in the form of two CPD courses: Level 5 Health and Safety and Level 5 Lifespan Development and Learning in Dance.
Participants are welcome to attend as many or a few of the four training days constituting each course. All sessions will take place during weekends at ISTD2 Dance Studios (London) at a cost of only £60 per day.
If all four training days of a course are attended there is an option of assessment to earn 30 credits at level 5 towards the Level 6 DDP or the BA (Hons) in Professional Practice through Middlesex University. Additional assessment fees apply.
