Two exciting diplomas in dance from Trinity

We've developed qualifications in partnership with international organisations to give you the chance to demonstrate your skills and knowledge as a dancer, or a teacher of dance and related professional disciplines.

All our assessments are based on the real-life needs of students and the industry, and each one of our assessors is a respected dance professional.

Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning (DDTAL)

The Level 6 Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning, provides evidence to employers, parents and carers that a dance practitioner has the expertise to teach children and young people.

Developed at the request of the major national dance organisations that comprise the Dance Training and Accreditation Partnership (DTAP) this diploma is designed for practitioners working across a range of settings and is recognised by the Education and Training Foundation as a route to Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS).

ATCL Performing
(Contemporary Dance)

The ATCL Performing (Contemporary Dance) is a Level 4 qualification designed to enable contemporary dance students to display and evidence their skills and knowledge through a series of performance-based assessment tasks. It was developed in consultation with Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, one of the world’s leading providers of contemporary dance education and training.

The qualification encourages candidates to be multi-skilled, reflective performers showing professional potential.


The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England and vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland. Qualifications Wales is responsible for regulating general and vocational qualifications in Wales.

Trinity College London is regulated by both Ofqual and Qualifications Wales, and is a validated member of the Council for Dance Education and Training for its Dance and Musical Theatre qualifications.
