Dancing to higher education

The Academy of Dance Arts has successfully completed the process for the renewal of the licence issued by the National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE) as a Further and Higher Education Institution offering courses from MQF Level 1 to MQF Level 5. The licence is renewed until April, 2021.

The NCFHE is a government entity which manages the licensing of education institutions. Among other activities, the NCFHE provides accreditation to further and higher educational institutions, provides accreditation to programmes or courses of studies at further and higher education levels, and provides quality assurance of educational institutions, programmes and courses.

The Academy of Dance Arts is one of the few local dance schools in Malta to hold such a licence.

The licence is granted to educational institutions which satisfy a set of criteria including operating from premises which have all the required permits from the competent authorities, provision of courses which are accredited or recognised and mapped to the national qualification framework, employment of qualified teachers, and implementation of a quality assurance framework for courses, students and teachers. The NCFHE carries out regular audits to ensure licensed institutions abide to licence conditions.

The licence gives existing and prospective students of the Academy of Dance Arts the peace-of-mind that the Academy endorses quality mechanisms required to offer an education programme which is to the standard set out by the NCFHE which, in turn, is aligned to the standard set out at a European level.

The Academy of Dance Arts is a professional dance school offering classes in classical ballet, Spanish dance, and other forms of dance to students from the age of three up to senior and vocational levels.
