CPD: Level 3 Award in Supporting the Delivery of Dance in PE and School Sport

Children learning dance.

One Dance UK is proud to be offering the Level 3 Award in Supporting the Delivery of Dance in Physical Education and School Sport, in association with 1st4Sport and afPe.

Why is this qualification useful?

The qualification has been launched in response to the ongoing and increasing demand for primary dance CPD. Completion of the course will allow practitioners to facilitate high-quality dance lessons with confidence and develop creative thought in children and young people. The qualification is designed for individuals actively working or seeking to work with children and young adults in the delivery of Physical Education and School Sport provision.

Most schools now require outside facilitators to have a level 3 delivery qualification. The course involves two days of face-to-face training and follow-up assignments involving the planning and delivery of primary dance lessons. The training will develop, renew and enhance subject knowledge, whilst providing ideas to ensure lessons are fresh, innovative and engaging.

Successful completion of the award will equip practitioners to teach dance in both primary and secondary settings and could lead to level 4 dance teaching qualifications. By studying with One Dance UK, you will be working with the only subject association for dance and taught by outstanding dance practitioners.

Who can apply to take part?

In order to apply, you must have at least one of the following prerequisites;

  • a qualification in delivering Physical Education/Dance Level 2 or higher
  • Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)
