Current CPD courses
Current short online CPD courses for dance teachers
During lockdown all the short online CPD courses have adjustments made to the week 3 work to enable courses to be completed without the need to teach a class. An adjusted reflective exercise can be done instead of the usual relfections on the taught class or session.
Don’t forget that you can take advantage of the cheaper price of courses by booking before the end of February. You can book any of the courses listed until May 2020. You can find all the details in this earlier post.
Courses for March are looking good and as this post is just after the closing date we are extending the closing date to 25 February so you can still book until then (UK time). It is always enjoyable to work with teachers again and it is good to see current bookings are a mix of teachers new to these courses as well as teachers who have taken one or more courses previously. As always it will be great to have this opportunity to work with you.
NB: although the Book a Course page gives the closing date as 21 February you can continue to book until the end of 25 February (UK time).
Happy New Year. There is always a lot to do at the beginning of the year and here at CPD for Dance Teachers it is a busy time. In response to requests for course lists to cover several months at a time the new course list covers from January to May. So you can book now for any of the courses on the list.
New courses coming later this year
There is preparation work being done on some new courses to add to the current courses. There will be news of them in the coming months. Watch out for announcements later in the year.
Our Short Online CPD Courses for Dance Teachers are very reasonably priced especially as they include at least three personal email tutorials/feedback during each course. This personal feedback personalises the course to your teaching practice in a way that teachers report to be very beneficial.
We don’t often increase our course fees but it is necessary to do so this year. Current fees per course are £55 and they will increase for courses booked after the end of February 2020 to £59. In order to give you an opportunity to still pay the current fee of £55 you can book any of the current courses listed to May 2020 at £55 as long as you pay for them before the end of February 2020. Course bookings paid for after the end of February 2020 will be £59 per course. The courses will still offer fantastic value and a convenient way to get some CPD under your belt.
You can find information sheets to download about all of our online courses on the Short Online Courses page.
We look forward to having an opportunity to work with you this year.
