Course summary

This distance learning programme supports professionals, to work more effectively with learners who are deafblind (multi-sensory impaired) and for teachers with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or equivalent can lead to a the MQ in deafblindness.

The Education of Learners with Multisensory Impairment (Deafblindness) course is the only nationally recruiting course leading to the DfE recognised Mandatory Qualification (MQ) in Deafblindness / Multi-sensory Impairment. An alternative non mandatory (Non MQ) programme is also open to teachers as well as other professionals with appropriate qualifications working with children and young people who are deafblind, who are not seeking the MQ.

This distance learning programme will enable qualified teachers and others working in education related fields to work more effectively with learners who are deafblind (multi-sensory impaired). While many students on the MSI course are practising teachers working with children, others are from further education, social services, paramedical or medical specialisms, or residential work.

Employability

Many of those who have completed the course continue to work with people with deafblindness (MSI) and some continue or progress to influential roles in specialist MSI units, or as advisory teachers for pupils who are deafblind. Others take key roles in such fields as managing further education for MSI learners or sensory impairment in an LEA or other setting, or go on to promoted posts in school or other management.
