The Learning Associate programme aims to establish strong, sustainable relationships with local education settings who are committed to providing and growing the capacity for a high-quality dance education.
We are excited to have the following partners in our current cohort:
- Bethany CE Junior School, Discover Associate
- Bourne Academy, Discover Associate
- The Bournemouth & Poole College, Discover Associate
- Twynham School, Dream Associate
NEW for 2019, we are pleased to welcome Poole High School as a Discover Associate, Malmesbury Park Primary School as a Play Associate and Victoria Education Centre as a Play Associate.
On an ongoing basis, PDSW will provide Associate students and staff with professional workshops, tickets to see live performances, curriculum specific projects, careers advice, peer-training, performance opportunities and responsive department support. At the end of the academic year the schools will come together to share and celebrate their success with each other.
In addition to the above, we can support schools in delivering Arts Awards and applying for Arts Mark, and Learning Associates can get access to our widely popular Creative Careers Day.
Pupils from Learning Associates are prioritised for Work Experience placements.
There are three tiers of participation based on annual fee; £500 to become a Play Associate, £900 to become a Discover Associate and £1500 to become a Dream Associate.
