What does this mean for the TSDYL course?

Teaching young learners through the performing arts (including speech and drama) is becoming increasingly popular around the world but there are few qualifications that support teachers in this area. The TSDYL course is a custom-made qualification designed to support teachers in an area which is unregulated but increasingly in demand. Whilst un-regulated, the TSDYL certificate has been accredited by NCFE demonstrating the courses quality and rigor. The TSDYL course is a 130hr certificate which has been designed to meet the requirements set out by Ofqual for a UK level 4 qualification.

On completion of the TSDYL course, learners will receive a certificate of achievement. The certificate is evidence of the knowledge and skills gained by completing the qualification. This qualification has been accredited by NCFE under the Customised Qualification and the certificate of achievement will be issued directly by NCFE.
