This qualification suite is aimed at secondary school students who require an alternative curriculum. Over 329,000 children were excluded from schools in England in 2019. There are few solutions designed specifically to influence the sustainable engagement of these children in education. This suite therefore provides an opportunity for schools and PRUs to offer this as an innovative solution. 

This qualification suite is also relevant to learners in mainstream schools. It can be embedded into the creative strands of national curriculum programmes for physical education or offered as a value-added alternative.  Finally, it can be offered to learners in further education that wish to develop urban dance skills to progress in their education or employability pathways. 

This qualification suite is developed with dance and drama specialists CREATIVE MINDS as the technical collaborators. It was validated through consultation with Omnia Foundation a revolutionary independent school. 

The qualification suite is available to any education provider that meets the Transcend Centre Recognition and Supplementary Qualification Conditions.
