FAQs

Can any school become an ADC?

If your school is interested in becoming an Approved Dance Centre, they would need to offer the Level 4 DDE. If your school is interested in offering the DDE please contact pqmanager@istd.org. Applications to become an ADC are welcome at any time. If you want to deliver our graded and vocational graded examinations and class tests, your school does not need to become an ADC. Instead, your school must have a qualified Society teacher with a current and appropriate level of membership. 

I want to teach on the DDE programme. How can I do that?

As part of the ADC scheme, we deliver a scheme for Approved Tutors; teachers who are suitably qualified, experienced and trained to deliver the DDE programme. All Approved Tutors are linked to one or several ADCs and deliver the qualifications at ADC approved venues. To be eligible to apply to become an Approved Tutor, you must be linked to an ADC and hold either:

  • at the very minimum, the Licentiate oR the Fellowship qualification in the genre(s) you wish to tutor; 
  • The Level 6 Diploma in Dance Pedagogy (for delivery of contextual units only)
  • Or equivalent qualification.

You will also need to demonstrate adequate evidence of professional competence in teaching teachers or be prepared to work under the supervision of an experienced Approved Tutor for a specified timescale.

If you do not have any of the listed qualifications, but feel your qualifications and experience are suitable, simply contact us to discuss the specifics of your situation. On confirmation of your pending approval as an Approved Tutor, you will be required to attend a mandatory Tutor Training course organised by the Education & Training Department before you can begin tutoring any students.
