Summary

This Postgraduate Diploma provides a flexible opportunity for professional development in the area of deaf education. Less intensive than the Masters route (see MA Deaf Education) this course allows you to qualify as a teacher of the deaf without the need for a dissertation.

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 course allows you to reflect upon this crtitically and relate your knowledge to current theories and research regarding childhood deafness, development and learning.

**Expertise**
The School of Education has a national reputation both in teaching and research in the field of deaf education and draws students from all over England and Northern Ireland with a variety of experiences and knowledge, which you can also benefit from as part of our community.

**Accreditation**
Approved by the Department for Education (DfE) to offer the Mandatory Qualification for Teachers of the Deaf, the programme integrates cutting-edge research knowledge with practitioner expertise to develop skilled, knowledgeable and critical practitioners.
