Who is VCE VET Dance for?

The VCE VET Dance program is for students who are new to or currently studying dance. The content of the program does not assume that the learner has significant industry knowledge and experience.

Who are our Trainers?

Our VCE VET Dance trainers are all approved holders of the Ausdance CUA20111 Certificate II in Dance. These trainers have relevant accreditation and qualifications, and also current experience. Their skills, knowledge and experience are mapped against each unit of competency they deliver. This information is updated annually and evidence of new professional learning activity is recorded and filed. This information is kept in the Ausdance Victoria RTO Trainer Register.

Our trainers consider individual student needs when finalising training programs and assessment. This may be reflected in changes of approach to training and types of activities, the styles of dance offered, the integration of physical activity with sedentary or group tasks versus independent work. jeffrey award
