So we decided to do things a little differently this year for our Newsletter! Instead of sending out a good old fashioned paper copy we thought this year we would pop the updates/news straight on here for you to have a look at!
As some of you know we have been busy updating the website over the last couple of months & thought this would encourage you all take a peek at what we have been doing too!
We do need to tell our Member's that as a result of 2020 we are reducing your Subs Fees for 2021 to £50, you will receive your forms via email shortly.
Please remember to complete & email back your forms as soon as you can!
You will also be able to find the Subs Forms on the Member's Page, along with the end of year accounts update for you to have a read through should you wish!
Also may we remind you that we can offer DBS checks done for you too at a charge of £55.
Again please contact us direct if we can help you with this service.
Well, what a year 2020 has been for us all! The worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 has had such a huge impact on our daily lives & our Dancing lives!
The age old saying of 'You Don't Know What You've Got Till It's Gone' has become so clear for us all in these past few months, but as an Association we believe we have perceived and encouraged as many of you as possible to keep going with your schools as best you could through 2020, we have all adapted to online classes, with our homes becoming not only offices but studios and dance floors too!
UTD has finished the year with a flurry of Examination Sessions in December which has been lovely to arrange & make happen for those schools and we are starting to have some Examination Sessions booked for the start of 2021 too, so let's keep our fingers crossed that we are able to make those happen too!
Please contact us if you are thinking about booking an Examination Session to see if we can make this work for you & your schools - email@example.com
UTD are also moving forward with GQAL work with more work continuing into 2021, you can contact us direct if you wish to apply for your schools to be GQAL Approved Centres for you to be able to offer this regulated work to your students & also for Candidate Request Forms for your students to be able to take part in them.
We do also offer GQAL Teaching Qualifications & again encourgae anyone interested to get in touch with us direct.
For any GQAL enquiries/requests please also email -
We will keep our COVID-19 information as upto date as we can over the next few weeks, but we also encourage you all to keep yoursleves upto date with your local area guidelines.
