Join our established, experienced team within our Centre for Deaf Students. Your role is to provide specialist support to deaf or hearing impaired students within their learning programmes. You will dedicate your time to students in the classroom to provide note taking support, enabling students to concentrate on either lip reading or watching their sign language interpreter in class. The support aims to encourage the deaf student to achieve autonomy and as far as possible operate with independence within their environment to promote confidence and achieve success on their course. This is an ideal opportunity for someone who is interested in learning or improving on their basic sign language skills and who is interested in working with deaf and hard of hearing students. This role is available on a permanent, zero hour’s basis and will work term time only.
