Comments about Education of Deaf Children PgD-PgC - At the institution - Hatfield - Hertfordshire
This programme is for qualified teachers who wish to gain a nationally recognised qualification for teachers of deaf children and young people.
Education of Deaf Children PgD/PgC
The programme comprises a core of studies taken by all students. These studies are concerned with the education of deaf children (covering educational provision and teaching methods); theoretical and practical aspects of audiology and language and communication (involving linguistics, language development and acquisition of spoken and signed language by deaf children).
During the two year programme there are two 4-week blocks of assessed teaching plus visits to observe the variety of educational provisions for deaf children.
Campus taught modules take place between 10am and 4pm on one day a week over two years. Additionally a four-week block of assesed teaching in a provision for deaf pupils is undertaken in the Spring term of each year.
