Drama & Speech, Dance and PPAD (DaDA) Examiner vacancies

Two assessors wanted for revised Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning (DDTAL)

A unique dance teaching qualification, the Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning (DDTAL) has recently been revised by Trinity College London so that it will be able to evidence the skills and knowledge of dance practitioners working in any dance style, with any population group (including adults as well as children) and in most dance teaching contexts.

As well as offering degree-level recognition in dance teaching, the qualification is also recognised as a route to Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS). Trinity is therefore looking to recruit two new DDTAL assessors: one with high levels of experience and understanding in relation to community dance practice; and the other being a specialist in the principles and practice of safe dance across a broad range of dance contexts OR with knowledge of legal compliance in relation to dance delivery.
