Opportunities to Teach for WDDA

George Raggett, WDDA Trustee and BSL Tutor

At Wiltshire and Dorset Deaf Associaon (WDDA) we are offering the opportunity for people to consider taking up a career, or just supplementing their income, through teaching British Sign Language (BSL) and more general Deaf Awareness & Communication skills.  Across Dorset and Wiltshire the demand for our training courses from Businesses, Schools and Public services is continuing to increase in addition to the publicly available courses we run at various venues.  We will support suitable candidates with the costs of obtaining a City & Guilds Teaching qualification and the support of an experienced mentor during your early training and ongoing development.

There are lots of opportunities for you to work alongside experienced teachers in our team who are all bi-lingual in BSL and English.  We have a proven and successful track record of developing individuals in this role.  The offer is open to all, of any age and background, Deaf or Hearing.  You would be working on a freelance basis and the pay would be in the range of £17 – £25 per hour depending on experience and the level you would be teaching at.  To express an interest or for more information contact WDDA Administrator Zoe on 07793284109 or admin@wdda.co.uk for a written/spoken reply or to arrange a Zoom or Whatsapp video call with a signing member of our team.

    I have experience in teaching because I used to work as a teaching assistant in special schools. I also have Welsh BSL sign language and would be willing to learn English BSL.

    I currently have BSL 2 and start my BSL 3 on 30 March 19 with signature at Blackburn College.

    Can I have more info on what a I need to do to be a tutor. I would like to tutor level 1 as a level 3 qualified. Is that possible? Do I attend one of your courses to give me this qualification?

    Please advise.

    Kind regards


    • Hi Danny,

      Thank you for getting in touch. WDDA is based in Bournemouth in Dorset – is this where you are hoping to teach? Do you hold any form of teaching qualification? Best wishes, Zoe – WDDA Administrator
