Licentiate Modern Theatre & Tap Training

The ISTD Licentiate qualification is designed to enhance & improve established teacher’s skills.

Candidates must already hold their DDE, be teaching regularly & have been doing so for at least 5 years, as well as being responsible for students entering ISTD examinations.

Proof of teaching experience will be required upon examination application.

Jackie runs regular ‘group’ Licentiate lessons in both the Modern Theatre & Tap genres.

Private lessons are available, although most people benefit from a group learning environment where teaching methodologies can be openly discussed & debated.

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

Jackie also works at several colleges and studios within Essex, please click here to find out more.
