ABOUT THE DJW SCHOOL

DJW in-house diplomas are for youths and adults. 

 

We offer level one and level two for youths and level three for adults. You are under no obligation to complete the entire diploma. You should not consider DJW as a substitute to higher education as we are not connected to a governing body with accreditation. Rather join DJW in order to further your skills and explore opportunities with us.

 

Each year completed by a student will contribute towards the diploma. (which takes four years to complete) If you attend for one year, you will be awarded part certification. If you decide to train for a second year you will receive the second part certification until you reach the end. You will then be awarded a DJW in-house diploma completed certification.

 

We focus on equipping the student with a specific knowledge and skillset. The DJW Diploma will help you in your current and future career or hobbyist purposes. DJW workshops include in depth modules created by Daniel-John Williams and have been approved in-house.
