Training Department update
By Anita Lowe, Interpreter and Training Coordinator
The Training Department are delighted to welcome Mark Hooper to Deaf Direct. Mark’s role will be to teach our BSL Level 3 course which is currently running in Worcester, and our BSL Level 1 course which is currently running in Oxford. Mark is an enthusiastic and experienced tutor, and we are looking forward to developing our teaching program for the new academic year starting in September.
We will be running a BSL Level 1 course in Worcester starting on 3rd March, Tuesday evenings from 6 – 9pm, lasting for 20 weeks. The full fee is £349 but we are able to offer a concessionary fee of £200 for people on JSA, ESA, Income Support or in full-time education.
We will also be running a series of 8 week lipreading classes with our freelance tutor, Michael Underwood. These friendly classes are for beginners or improvers and will run on Thursdays from March 19th. In Hereford the classes will be 10am – 12pm, and in Worcester 2 – 4pm. The fee is £50 for the 8 week course – that’s only around £3 per hour!
