We have also had a large number of students use their A Level Dance qualification to help them to access university courses such as teaching, accountancy and fine art. Some students have also chosen to go straight into employment in a range of industries including the police force, personal training and dance teaching while others have accessed apprenticeships in areas such as accountancy.
