This Level 5 course aims to build on the knowledge and skills developed in pedagogic practice at Level 4 through the guided application of the teaching and learning strategies into their own teaching practice. Learners will develop the skills needed to confidently manage the learning environment in which they practice through the study of curriculum design, assessment and quality assurance. Modules in dance history and choreographic practice aim to ensure that learners are able to contextualize their practice in relation to the wider professional and creative dance industry. These modules are also designed to ensure that students are developing the necessary academic skills, which will be essential for further studies in higher education.
