A learner is permitted to register for ISTD Provisional Membership as long as they are working towards their DDI/DDE. This membership can be valid for a maximum of 8 years. This allows the learner to enter students during this time for ISTD examinations whilst they are studying their DDI/DDE and then once they are fully qualified, after completing the DDE, they can become a Full Teaching Member.
Separately from membership, a learner has a maximum of 5 years to complete the DDI and 5 years to complete the DDE. Moreover, if the learner completed a DDI/DDE unit or observations/teaching practice more than 5 years ago, but not completed the qualification in any genre they will need to be reassessed on the relevant unit by their Approved Tutor to ensure they are still within the standards required to be qualified in the DDI/DDE.
