Course summary

This distance learning course for Teachers of Children with Hearing Impairment is the largest in the UK and one of the leading programmes in this field both nationally and internationally.

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. If you are not a qualified teacher of school-aged pupils, you may take this award but will not be eligible to obtain qualified teacher of the deaf status from the NCTL.

If you successfully complete all modules for the Postgraduate Diploma you may choose to transfer to the MEd.

Employability

The 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.

There is the opportunity to work towards a further professional qualification in the field of Education both within schools and in other settings, including progression to a PhD or EdD. The excellent careers advice provided by personal tutors has encouraged many of our graduates to successfully apply for leadership roles working with hearing impaired children and young people. These include: specialist teachers, educational audiologists, teaching assistants, speech and language therapists, youth workers, social workers, counsellors and BSL.
