Jazzpaws Posted May 31, 2018 Share Posted May 31, 2018 This is a tough one and a great worry to parents who are supporting DC's on a wonderful journey but without any secure prospects. Permanent contracts are few and far between (I am so pleased for those who have them). DD grew very late and has turned out to be a beautiful young lady, just over 5'10" This really hasn't helped in securing a long term contract, which is very hard to cope with and so disappointing after all those years of hard work and dedication. However, she graduated with a 2:1 from the wonderful Central School of Ballet last year and has secured a place on the Royal Academy of Dance PGCE (11-19) programme with NQT status starting in August ! It was a late choice, but she is so excited about this new venture and can't wait to start! As a parent, I am very proud (as always) and also pleased to see her hard work and those results pay off - and also would like to credit Central School of Ballet staff with excellent training ! I do feel the RAD is the best place to pursue the PGCE (my opinion) The only annoyance is Student Finance 'Here we go again' Just felt I had to share, as the journey goes on and the destination is never set in stone. Saying that, our dancers have resilience of huge rocks. Also, as parents on here, it is so inspiring to see what others have achieved with their journeys even if those journeys have arrived at completely different destinations ! Wishing well to all and please post your journeys. Mary x 9 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
