DDE Qualification

The DDE (Diploma in Dance Education) can only be studied at an ISTD Approved Dance Centre via an ISTD Approved Tutor.

Jackie is an ISTD Approved Tutor.

In order to become a qualified ISTD teacher, the DDE qualification must be completed.

To apply to train for the DDE qualification, a candidate must have passed Intermediate in their chosen Dance Genre.

The new DDE consists of 5 units.

Units 1,2,& 5 are required to be taken once. Units 3 & 4 will need to be completed in as many dance genres as you wish to teach.

Candidates should have some teaching experience, as the qualification builds on skills that are already being implemented & used on a regular basis.

Jackie & her tutors offer courses on ALL the new DDE Units.

For more details, and any queries, regarding the best option for your individual circumstance please email Jackie – info@jackiebarnes.co.uk, she will be happy to advise.
