Opportunities to Teach for WDDA

Have you thought about a career in teaching?

Looking ahead to the academic year 2021/22 we are looking for positive people who can pass on their knowledge of BSL to the next generation of students.

Could you be a Tutor? Are you already a BSL Tutor?  Potential applicants will ideally have a Level 3 BSL qualification and a teaching or training qualification i.e PTLLS.  WDDA is able to provide financial support to applicants who demonstrate the necessary knowledge and deaf awareness to teach BSL but need a nationally recognised qualification for their career development.

We have courses at Level 1, 2 and 3 beginning in September and are looking to develop BSL Level 4 courses in the future. We are also looking to offer more courses across Dorset and Wiltshire to help meet growing demand.

To find out how Wiltshire & Dorset Deaf Association can support you to teach BSL please email Zoe at admin@wdda.co.uk with a copy of your CV.

    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
