Designed for individuals in work, the course allows you to learn through distance learning materials, which are supported by tutorials and regular day schools as well as two short residential stays which will allow you to learn from fellow students.
Drawing on your own experiences with deaf children, the Deaf Education course at University of Leeds allows you to reflect upon this critically and relate your knowledge to current theories and research regarding childhood deafness, development and learning.
Graduates will use the knowledge and skills developed throughout this specialist teaching qualification to progress in their existing educational roles or pursue opportunities in schools, local authority support services or clinical programmes.
