Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) with the RAD is an opportunity for you to develop your knowledge and skills whether you’re a dancer, a teacher running your own dance school, a choreographer, an arts administrator, or simply interested in dance. We can provide you with a variety of activities and content from webinars and in-person workshops, to longer events that allow you to network with other dance professionals from around the world.
A flexible approach
We take a flexible approach where you can take part in CPD offered by the RAD, and also by other organisations. We recognise that CPD is personal to you, and your situation and so we let you tailor your CPD to suit your own situation, whether you would like to develop more knowledge in injury prevention, keep up to date with the latest legislation, discuss teaching strategies with fellow teachers, or focus on developing your leadership and resilience skills, you can create your own CPD plan. RAD CPD may inspire you to further study or lead to increased wellbeing and we aim to provide you with what you need to develop.
The RAD is committed to producing the best teachers in the world and CPD is one way to showcase that you are up to date on current dance teaching practice, legislation or health and personal wellbeing.
We offer a range of professional and personal development opportunities to suit you. Activities are open to all; however, RAD teaching members will need to participate in a minimum number of CPD activities each year in order to retain Registered Teacher status. This requirement must be completed in the CPD year, between 1 September and 31 August.
