Membership Types

Affiliate Member

For non-Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing qualified teachers who are actively teaching dance and entering students for exams. 

What is the eligibility criteria?

Affiliate membership is available to a wide range of non-ISTD qualified teachers who actively teach dance.

Any person who holds teaching qualifications with an awarding organisation which is approved by a UK regulator or associated with a regulated awarding organisation can apply for affiliate membership.  

If the teaching qualification is from a non-regulated awarding organisation or if comparable professional training and experience is submitted instead of a teaching qualification, it will be assessed on a case by case basis.

We have recently conducted a review of 120 members in the Affiliate category to automatically upgrade those who meet the criteria into Full Teacher Member status, so that these members can continue to enter students into exams.
