About

The Teachers of Children with Hearing Impairment programme offered by the University of Birmingham is the largest in the UK and one of the leading programmes in this field both nationally and internationally.

Overview

Our Teachers of Children with Hearing Impairment programme offered by the University of Birmingham aims to meet the needs of the wide range of people working with deaf children.

 The Mandatory qualification, which has been approved by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), is open to teachers who are qualified to teach learners in England (from 0 to 25 years of age) and it aims to equip teachers who are already qualified to teach learners in England to meet the relevant standards to achieve qualified teacher of the deaf status. 

The Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) in Special Education for the education of learners with a hearing impairment, is also open to other professionals who do not wish, or are not eligible, to obtain qualified teacher of the deaf status – for example lecturers of deaf students, communication support workers and educational psychologists. 

Careers

The MEd and PGDip for Teachers of Children with Hearing Impairment is ideal for teachers who are already qualified to teach school-aged children in England but require the mandatory qualification to achieve qualified teacher of the deaf status from the Department for Education. 

The non mandatory MEd and PGDip qualification is suitable for professionals who do not wish, or are not eligible, to obtain qualified teacher of the deaf status – for example lecturers of deaf students, communication support workers and educational psychologists.
