The Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning

The new Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning (DDTAL) is a nationally recognised Level 6 Diploma – similar in level to the third year of a degree – and has been designed to appeal to teachers working in a wide range of contexts, including schools, hospitals, care homes, and community centres. Originally created as a result of a collaboration between Trinity College London and the Dance Training and Accreditation Partnership (DTAP) it provides evidence and validity of dance teaching skills and is recognised as a route to Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status.

For more information please go to Trinity College.
