Rapid developments in audiology and our understanding of language, communication and educational practice make teaching and learning for deaf children an exciting area of study.
The PGCert Deaf Education (International) course uses an evidence-based approach to meeting the diverse needs of deaf children and places a strong emphasis on the translation of theory to practice.
You will have the opportunity to access the latest research about the wide-ranging impact of deafness on language acquisition, literacy and holistic development. You will learn about Audiological Management and apply this to the context of deaf children in your own setting.
You will learn from a multi-professional team within a highly specialised and internationally recognised department. Deaf Education at Manchester works alongside the associated disciplines of Speech and Language Therapy and Audiology, giving you a unique experience that fully equips you with the skills needed to teach deaf children and young people.
We ensure that our teaching is reflective of the range of perspectives and philosophies that are represented in the field.
Teaching and learning
You will take four units over a year. This will require the equivalent of one day a week minimum commitment.
All four units within the certificate are provided online and learners study them at a distance. This provides the opportunity to learn at your own rate, at a time and place that suits you. The course is set within a framework of online support and workshops to ensure you have the chance to meet and share ideas.
