- The ISTD has more than 7,500 members in more than 75 countries around the world and conducts roughly 250,000 assessments every year on a global basis.
- The ISTD has been offering experienced teachers two highly regarded, internationally recognized advanced level teaching qualifications for many years. The ISTD’s Licentiate and Fellowship build on the skills learned in the initial teacher training qualifications combined with the knowledge and experience that come with practice as a teaching practitioner.
- Licentiate: This qualification builds on the skills learned in the DDE (Diploma in Dance Education), CDE (Certificate in Dance Education), the Associate Diploma for Theatre Dance teachers or the Associate for Dance Sport teachers. It assists in furthering a teacher in both syllabus knowledge and teaching skill.
- Fellowship: This is the highest teaching qualification offered by the ISTD, further building on the skills and experience gained through the Licentiate qualification. You are therefore expected to show a depth and breadth of technical knowledge and artistry as well as a high standard of teaching.
