Master of Teaching (Dance)
The Master of Teaching (Dance) offers teachers an exciting opportunity to further their knowledge and expertise through research in their own practice.
The programme draws on the RAD’s significant experience in dance teacher education together with the specialist expertise of a consortium comprising CandoCo, Council for Dance Education and Training (CDET) and Youth Dance England (YDE). Collectively, the consortium covers the current range of dance teaching contexts in the UK: public sector dance teaching (schools and FE colleges), vocational training (private sector), dance in higher education, dance and disability, youth dance and community dance.
The Master of Teaching (Dance) is a modular programme delivered via distance learning, normally over two or three years. The programme offers high quality dance teachers an opportunity to engage in:
- continuing professional development through completing a higher degree
- postgraduate research based on their own professional practice
- a collaborative provision supported by expertise in all areas of dance education and training
- a career progression which will put them at the forefront of dance teaching innovation.
The Master of Teaching (Dance) is comparable to any other award at M Level (MA, MSc, MEd) but has a distinct focus on the impact of teaching as a context for advanced learning, reflective practice and original thinking in and through the praxis of dance education.
The principle of a Masters level qualified teaching profession is supported by the Universities’ Council for the Education of Teachers report Masters in Teaching and Learning: Making it work (UCET 2008). The Royal Academy of Dance is proud to be one of the first organisations to offer a Master of Teaching award specifically designed for practising dance teachers.
The Faculty of Education is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a grant from The Headley Trust (part of The Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts) towards bursary support for British dancers who have reached the end of a professional career and wish to pursue a teaching qualification in a FoE programme of study. Applicants to the Master of Teaching (Dance) who have had significant experience as a professional dancer and who wish to be considered for the Headley Trust Bursary should be aware that the application deadline for the MTD and the Headley Trust bursary is 30 April, 2013.
