Dance Teaching Mentoring
The Dance Teaching Mentoring Programme is a funded professional development opportunity for mid-career dance teachers, identified by their peers.
“My mentor enabled me to see how I can progress myself further”
The selected teachers are matched with a mentor working in a high-level leadership position, supporting them in developing their ambitions to be future leaders in dance or the wider arts sector, and to consider their future beyond or alongside their current careers.
“I have gained my own self-belief. I have secured a head of department role in my school, as well as developing my own youth training programme to support students from my area who do not have the money to access the CAT programme. My mentor enabled me to see how I can progress myself further and how I can develop as an individual within a school organsation.” – Rebecca Woolven (Head of Dance at Swindon Academy)
