This is a challenging Level 4 course. It is aimed at candidates 17 years of age and over who have: 1) achieved the Level 3 DDI qualification and wish to complete their training in order to become a fully qualified and accredited ISTD dance teacher 2) wish to commence their training to become a fully qualified and accredited ISTD dance teacher. The DDE has been accredited by Ofqual at Level 4 on the QCF which is roughly equivalent to the level attained at first year degree level.

DDE will enable learners to work in a variety of independent dance schools across the country and abroad or to establish their own dance school. It is also a valuable qualification for progression to the ISTD Licentiate exam and/or the ISTD Level 6 Diploma in Dance Pedagogy.
