Early Careers Group

The DanceHE Early Career Group is designed for those who consider themselves in the early stages of a career in Dance in Higher Education. This may be in relation to teaching, research or postgraduate study. We welcome people from all backgrounds, for example:

Those who have worked professionally in the industry and want to get into higher    education teaching

Those who have worked in other teaching contexts and wish to move to higher education

Those who have engaged in higher education at some level, for example as a visiting lecturer, but want  to develop their careers on this path

Those who have undertaken research roles and want to transition into a lecturing role

Those who are new to higher education dance lecturing or research

Those in postgraduate study

The group aims to provide opportunities to network and support each other as well as share skills and initiate opportunities for development. We intend to hold meetings three times a year, usually along side other CPD events. We also offer a range of activity that involves working with more experienced academics and DanceHE board members.
