This course aims to develop the pedagogic knowledge and skills learners have accumulated through theoretical and practical components of the level 4 and 5 courses so they may be able to apply them to their own practice in the professional industry. The main objective of this programme is to enable learners to work academically and independently at HE level 6 with a focus on their chosen specialist dance genre or age phase specific teaching and learning practices. Modules in dance science, physical, social and emotional development and wider professional dance practice will continue to inform and update the learners understanding of trends in the current teaching and learning environment.
