About CLPL Courses for Teachers
COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT – The courses scheduled in May have been cancelled, and will be rescheduled later in the year when advice on social distancing allows us to safely deliver training. Those who booked for the course in May will be given a full refund and will have priority booking when the training block is re-scheduled.
The demand for dance is increasing within educational settings. In order to support schools and teachers, we have devised CLPL sessions on various areas of dance education which will achieve areas of curriculum for excellence, academic and core skills.
YDance can provide CLPL for Nursery, Primary, ASN and Secondary school teachers to develop both their skills and confidence in delivering creative dance, cross curricular dance sessions, core dance and SQA dance in schools.
Higher Dance CLPL
The Higher Dance CLPL course aims to develop teachers’ knowledge, skills and understanding to enable them to deliver the qualification in their establishment. These practical sessions cover all knowledge needed for the technical and performance skills of a chosen dance style or the mandatory choreography unit.
National 5 CLPL
The National 5 CLPL course aims to develop teachers’ knowledge, skills and understanding to enable them to deliver the qualification in their establishment.

Dance for Primary CLPL
This one day practical course aimed at Primary teachers will provide insight of how dance can enrich kinaesthetic learning. This course aims to develop teachers’ knowledge of dance to support the delivery of cross-curricular dance sessions. These sessions will help reinforce pupils’ knowledge of classroom topics as well as develop fundamental movement skills.
Further Development CLPL
The Further Development CLPL courses are full-day practical sessions to inspire and rejuvenate teachers who are delivering SQA awards in dance. All courses are aimed at teachers who have previously attended a CLPL course delivered by YDance or are already delivering SQA Dance in Secondary schools and are looking for fresh ideas, new exercises and sequences.
