CPD with the RAD

We offer a range of CPD training opportunities to suit dance teachers. These are open to all, however, participation in the scheme is mandatory for RAD teaching members. Teaching members will need to take part in a minimum number of CPD courses each year in order to retain their Registered Teacher status. This requirement must be completed in the CPD year, between 1 September and 31 August.

COVID-19 update

All UK based face-to-face CPD activities are currently postponed with the view to offer these activities as soon as reasonably possible in the next CPD year. International CPD activity is subject to the current government guidance of that country, please email your National Office for further information.

Many of you may have already completed your CPD requirement. However, we recognise that the current exceptional circumstances mean that some of you may face difficulties in fulfilling the required CPD hours. If this is the case, when it is time to declare your CPD please indicate that you are Eligible for Exemption.

If you have questions please contact cpd@rad.org.uk or your local office. We will continue to offer a number of online activities, including live webinars and courses.
