Stagecoach Associate Diploma in Teaching Performing Arts (ADPA)

For performing arts professionals looking to develop skills in teaching children and young people and gain an Internationally recognised qualification

It’s not unusual for a young person’s dedication for the performing arts to have grown out of one teacher’s influence. We have seen many inspirational teachers whose passion and energy have set their subject alight for their students in a life-changing way.


Children and young people deserve the best possible teaching we can give them in order to discover that learning is fun, that learning is great and that a passion for the performing arts can last a lifetime! This is why we have set up this unique teaching developmental programme specifically aimed at performing arts professionals.
