This course will enable you to identify and understand the challenges faced when trying to adopt an inclusive approach to all aspects of life, and how you can meet and address these challenges in a positive way as members of a diverse global society.

You will be able to:

◾Have opportunities to consider a variety of issues and perspectives surrounding working with deaf, deaf blind and disabled people that you, as future professionals, need to be able to recognise.
◾Study current policies, procedures and practice that you will be able to influence in order to develop inclusive strategies.
◾Study all forms of deafness, the identity of deaf people who communicate in British Sign Language and those who do not.
◾Study in depth the Audiological and environmental technologies related to deaf people’s lives and issues of their language development.
◾Study relevant linguistic theory whilst learning British Sign Language Skills as well as Deaf Blind Communication and Guiding skills to prepare you for work in relevant domains.
◾Modules will be delivered using a range of interactive teaching strategies, in order to develop digital literacy and professional skills and attributes.

The foundation year of this course is designed to offer applicants who do not have the required qualifications, a programme which will equip them with a robust toolkit of academic, digital and personal skills required for successful study in higher education. It also provides an understanding of, and insight into, a range of disciplines that underpin their chosen programme of study. In the foundation year students will develop their ability to gain the most out of structured in-class study, and also to manage and evaluate their own independent learning. This wide range of transferable skills is of immense value in both undergraduate study and graduate employment. Upon successful completion of the foundation year, students will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of their subject area to degree level.
