TRAINING DEAF ADULTS – TRAINING DEAF SOUTH AFRICAN SIGN LANGUAGE FACILITATORS


SLED focuses on building the capacity of Deaf adult SASL users in order for them to become proficient trainers of SASL to hearing adults, and of Deaf teachers and teaching assistants of Deaf children.

In 2010, work was initiated on the development of the “Train the Deaf Trainer” programme which equips Deaf adults with a SASL qualification, an appreciation of Deaf culture, history and education and general facilitation skills. In 2010, SLED’s work included materials development and preparation; internal capacity building for SLED Deaf staff members; and networking, selection and preparation of potential Deaf trainees. Deaf facilitators of our SASL courses are also trained in education methodology. An education DVD for the training in teaching SASL was produced. SLED supported SASL access for Deaf SASL facilitators in the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) accredited Facilitation and Assessment Unit Standards, in which they successfully qualified.
