Tutor Training

Essential training for ISTD approved Tutors!

Tutor Training is essential for tutors within Approved Dance Centres and Distance Learning Tutors who wish to become approved in order to tutor the specific units of the Diploma in Dance Instruction (DDI) and Diploma in Dance Education (DDE).

Whether you are yet to attend the relevant course or you wish to refresh your knowledge, there is a course option to suit you. 

If you want more information about becoming an Approved Tutor, please contact Gemma Bridge.

 

Generic Teaching Skills Full Two Day course

Mandatory training for all new approved ISTD tutors of the DDI and DDE who propose to teach DDI unit 1, and DDE Units 1 & 2. All Tutors are approved to tutor the DDI and DDE units and must attend both training days in order to receive their tutor number and assess any learners.

The purpose of this training is to ensure Tutors have a full understanding of ‘generic teaching’ and know what is required of the learners for these units. The course also includes guidance on the portfolio and entry paperwork. This course is lectured by Jill Knight.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE

Only experienced tutors who have previously attended the full 2-day programme may book as a single-day delegate. If you have not attended Generic Teaching Skills Tutor Training before, then you must attend both days in order to become approved.
