This distance learning programme enables qualified teachers and others working in education related fields to work more effectively with learners who are deafblind (multi-sensory impaired). It is the only nationally recruiting programme leading to the GTC recognised Mandatory Qualification in Deafblindness/Multi-sensory Impairment. While many students are practising teachers working with children, others are from further education, social services, paramedical or medical specialisms, or residential work. 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.

The programme aims to provide an understanding of the effects and implications of dual sensory impairment on development, learning, and communication, through theoretical and practical work. It will include skills in assessment, monitoring and recording, a knowledge of teaching approaches and of support systems.

BPhil Modules 1–5 (Non Mandatory only)
PGCert Modules 1–3 (Masters Level)

This postgraduate course promotes the necessary interrelationship of these two elements and the application in planning, delivering and reviewing one's own professional interpreting work. Fundamental to progression within the programme is the development of BSL competence with particular emphasis on the appropriate use of sign to understand and respond to complex information in the workplace. You will develop the advanced level of understanding and fluency required to contribute to high level discussions and explore the appropriate registers and discourse styles for presenting and delivering formal, prepared, technical information.


Key elements of the course focus on promoting understanding and competence required for undertaking the role of a BSL/English interpreter. Training and support strategies will be studied, alongside issues of the values, practices and professionalism of interpreters and their relationship with personnel in allied occupational roles. At this stage, you will also receive initial coaching in skills, strategies and models for interpreting practice.
This is a two-year part-time course for those seeking to attain professional status as British Sign Language/English Interpreters. The course is mapped with the National Registers of Communication Professionals working with Deaf and Deafblind People (NRCPD), allowing graduates to register with NRCPD.
