    Teaching placements

    Many of our programmes offer face-to-face teaching experiences through placement opportunities. These develop your teaching skills and help you gain confidence while working with real students in a supportive and supervised environment. We work with many different partnership schools to provide a range of placements for students. These provide a multitude of dance teaching contexts and ensure that you become well-rounded and experienced teachers, equipped to face the unique demands of the profession.
