Rationale of Scheme of Work
The Hammond is a full time vocational training centre and offer courses in Musical Theatre (MT) or Dance (D). Both courses require ballet training, 5 times (D course) or 4 times (MT course) a week. The ballet training is split into 3 groups(A,B and C) depending on different levels of ballet. The students are assessed to determine which group they go into in their two week induction course at the beginning of term. This scheme of work has been designed for level C group in ballet.

The internet can be very valuable for the scheme of work as it will hopefully keep the student inspired alongside the teaching. You tube or other dance colleges or companies can be researched to help expand the students resource knowledge. Sharing their research will help re enforce their own learning and comprehension.
Teach back is about the students to feeding back to each other and the teacher what they have learned this can be after the peer assessment has happened after an exercise. According to pask it one of the most effective way of learning.
The SOW fits into the colleges overall curriculum by developing the knowledge of the student ready for year 2.
