  4. Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the means by which a teacher furthers their teaching practice through dance-related activities. From attending courses and events to independent learning (e.g. reading and journalling), continuing professional development can come in many forms.

Why is CPD so important?

Continuing Professional Development has a direct impact on the success of your business, keeping it current and vibrant and assisting your learners in staying creative, motivated and inspired.
