Certificate III in Dance Qualification

At Speech Day, on Thursday 21 November, Grace Burton, Olivia Hoffmann, Jaclyn Proud and Sophie Sibbons were awarded with the Certificate III in Dance qualification. We are incredibly proud of the outstanding effort and achievement of these students as the inaugural cohort to study and attain this qualification.

The CUA30113 Certificate III in Dance has been introduced at Westminster School in 2019 as an option for students who have successfully completed their Stage 2 Dance studies in Year 11, through the Extension Dance program. In line with the School's Strategic Plan, blended pathways, consisting of a combination of traditional SACE subjects and Vocational Education and Training courses are being offered to our students. The Certificate III in Dance is the first qualification to be both delivered and assessed onsite. It has been delivered at Westminster School under an agreement with Australian Teachers of Dancing Ltd. RTO31624 and is a nationally recognised qualification, contributing towards SACE completion and achievement of an ATAR. It provides a bridge, for passionate students of dance, between secondary and tertiary studies.
