Recognition and Accreditation of Prior Learning

To allow experienced members and new entrants to access ISTD qualifications at a level in line with their professional status, the ISTD runs two processes to assess prior experience and learning.

The Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) is for entry into the Level 6 Diploma in Dance Pedagogy (DDP), Licentiate or Fellowship qualification

The Accredidation of Prior Learning (APL) is for entry into the Level 3 Diploma in Dance Instruction (DDI) and Level 4 Diploma in Dance Education (DDE).
