NEW – CPD online short courses

studentAre you a busy dance teacher? Do you find it difficult to find the time to attend or do CPD courses? If you do then my new online, CPD for Dance Teachers short courses, coming soon, could be just what you are looking for. These flexible online courses could give you the opportunity to enhance your skills while fitting your CPD around your busy schedule.

I am developing these short courses with busy dance teachers in mind. Each of my short courses will focus on a key topic. You will be able to book one short course at a time. This enables you to study the topics you need at a pace that suits you and you can show your students and their parents or guardians that you are doing CPD. With flexibility like this you can book a short CPD course when you know you can fit it in. If you work with other dance teachers at your school you might want to take the same course together and enhance your development together.

I am passionate about helping dance teachers to enhance skills. I understand the challenges of finding suitable CPD courses and fitting them in with classes and family life. My short CPD courses are not intended to replace face to face courses as they will always be extremely valuable. The courses will offer practical CPD learning bites with personal email tutorial support to help you apply course content to your own teaching practice. CPD for Dance Teachers short courses can help you to expand, as well as refresh or update knowledge and understanding. Over time CPD for Dance Teachers short courses will explore various key topics from categories such as:

  • Safe Dance Practice for Dance Teachers
  • Dance Teaching Ethics
  • Learning and Teaching Dance

Initially these online courses will offer topic content to read or view online, practical ideas to help you explore the application of the content in your teaching practice plus email tutorial and feedback.

Some general course info

  • Duration: 3 weeks (weekly lessons with practical assignments to complete)
  • Cost of each course: £49 per person
  • A free Certificate of Completion will be sent to you upon completion of your course
  • It is essential during the course that you have regular access to a computer to access the course material, receive and send emails and be able to download email attachments (PDF files).

Watch out for details of the first CPD for Dance Teachers short online course, coming soon.

  1. im interested, do send me details, subheads for the topics listed above, thanks.

    • These short courses are individual units of learning that cover topics for dance teachers. Most of them will be addressing issues that are also relevant to safe dance practice. Having prepared a number of teachers to gain the Certificate in Safe and Effective Dance Practice I want to help teachers to do a little at a time of individual courses so that the development can be paced to suit each teacher.

      IADMS itself does not (as far as I am aware) offer a course. Various providers like myself prepared teachers for the Certificate in Safe and Effective Dance Practice which was accredited by Ofqual and managed by Trinity College London. They no longer offer this to new candidates and instead there is a new certificate The Healthy Dance Practice Certificate that is being assessed and managed by Safe in Dance International in agreement with IADMS. As far as I am aware this new certificate does not have Ofqual accreditation at the moment but they are working towards this for the end of the year. I am waiting for further information about this new certificate to become available with a view to me considering if I can offer a course for dance teachers who want to prepare for this certificate.

      I hope this answers your question.
