Students train to become Dalcroze practitioners and teachers in three stages. They work towards exams created by the Dalcroze Eurhythmics International Examination Board (DEIEB). The course lasts three years with an award at the end of each year (Year 1 – Foundation, Year 2 – Intermediate, Year 3 – Professional Certificate). The three years do not have to be consecutive. After receiving an award students can come back at a later date to complete their training. The Professional Certificate award enables the holder to call themselves a Dalcroze Eurhythmics teacher and they are able to teach children and adult beginners. Each Teacher Training course has a Director of Studies. The Director of Studies for Dalcroze UK is Dr Karin Greenhead.
