THERE is a desperate shortage of trained lip-reading teachers in the local area. Classes may be forced to close if suitable candidates cannot be found to take on this worthwhile and rewarding work. (Some funding may be available to help students with the costs of the course).

Lip-reading classes support and encourage deaf and hard-of-hearing people, giving them the skills and knowledge for self-reliance and active participation in the community. Teachers are highly qualified professionals who work with other professions and agencies. Classes are friendly, supportive and full of lively and stimulating challenges. Many people say that lip-reading classes have turned their lives around.

City Lit in London runs a part-time training course that enables students to complete much of the study in their local area, provided they are within travelling distance of a suitably qualified teacher who will give guidance and support. In addition, students will attend lecture blocks in London. The course also includes a City & Guilds qualification in teaching adults.

For further details and an application form please contact: LTTC Course Administrator, Faculty of Deaf Education and Learning Support, City Lit, Keeley Street, London WC2B 4BA; telephone 020 7492 2725/6; minicom: 020-7492-2746/7; fax: 020-7492-2745; email: cfdp@citylit.ac.uk. The next course starts in July 2008.
