Education of Learners with Multisensory Impairment (Deafblindness) MEd/BPhil/PGDip/PGCert /Ad Cert


Course Description

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.

Awards:

AdCert Modules 1–3 (Honours Level)
BPhil Modules 1–5 (Non Mandatory only)
PGCert Modules 1–3 (Masters Level)
PGDip Modules 1–5
MEd Modules 1–5 plus PIE and dissertation
PGDip + MQ Modules 1–5 plus teaching placement
