PDA in BSL Studies Questionnaire

SQA are developing a Professional Development Award (PDA) in British Sign Language (BSL) Studies which will support progression to becoming a qualified BSL tutor, or leading on to other related careers such as Interpreting, or simply for self development reasons.

The PDA is designed to improve BSL skills and will lead on to the existing PDA 'Teaching in Further Education' for those tutors who wish to teach BSL.

SQA are now beginning the wider consultation part of this development and would welcome feedback from Deaf BSL tutors, employers, students thinking about starting the course, previous students, individuals, training centres and anyone who feels they can give useful input.

Closing date for the questionnaire is 10th October 2007
