Please read the following description of a new qualification concept.

The key objective of the qualification is to provide experienced dance teachers and ex-professional dancers with a personally tailored training package and accredited qualification that builds on the requirements of the accredited Level 4 qualifications (CDE and DDE) and assesses a more refined, sophisticated level of teaching with a key focus on the in-depth knowledge of the teaching of a specific genre.
It will consist of six units, delivered via ISTD courses, training and mentoring.

The suggested qualification would not be compulsory. It is designed for those members who would like to progress their skills further in dance teaching with a focus on their relevant genre. It will give them  a qualification that is equivalent in level to the final year of a degree and allow them to apply for Licentiate status of the Society. It is also the aim that the qualification will have equivalence to the Level 5 Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (the qualification needed to work in the Further Education Sector).

Overall, what is your reaction to the concept?

Please explain why you have given the below rating in the comment box.
