Year of entry: 2020

Career opportunities

Lucia Martin - PGDip Deaf Education

"Teaching practice was both the most rewarding and challenging part of the course. I learnt new strategies and techniques and put them into practice, and the children consequently met their targets.

"This gave me a true idea how a teacher of the deaf works on a day-to-day basis and what the job entails."

Lucia Martin / PGDip Deaf Education

Most graduating students progress to a career in teaching deaf children. This is a diverse remit and a teacher of the deaf may work in a school for the deaf, a unit or resourced provision, at primary or secondary level, or a specialist nursery class.

They may also act as peripatetic support to deaf learners in mainstream classes, or early years child and family support, often moving through a range of these roles throughout their career.

Career opportunities can also include a move into academic research and higher education if that is an interest.
