At JVS we are proud to hold the status of Approved Dance Centre with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance. This status allows us to prepare and enter students for their teaching examinations with the ISTD. These examinations are Diploma in Dance Instruction (DDI) and Diploma in Dance Education (DDE) Both the DDI and DDE are accredited by the Regulatory Bodies in England and Wales (Ofqual for England and Northern Ireland, and the Department of Education and Skills for the Welsh Assembly) and are on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). This means that, as well as standing alone as respected dance teaching qualifications at level 3 and 4, they can also contribute towards other higher level qualifications.
We offer Vocational Examinations with the RAD in Ballet and with the ISTD for Tap and Modern Theatre at Intermediate Foundation to Advanced 2 Levels. These examinations are recognised by Ofqual and contribute to valuable UCAS points when the time comes for our students to apply for Universities.
