First Ever Delivery of Certificate IV in Training and Assessment in Auslan

20 Jul 2009

In 2008, the Centre of Excellence for Students who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing made history in Australia by delivering the full Certificate IV in Training and Assessment to an all-Deaf cohort. Delivery was done in Australian Sign Language (Auslan).

Recently, ten of the twelve who successfully completed the qualification were able to join with Head of Department, Libby Hughes and the Centre's coordinator, Cathy Clark to celebrate their achievement. Many of the teachers who team-taught the certificate with Cathy were able to join in the celebration, with three of the interstate teachers able to fly down. Also attending to ensure that the evening was a special event were guest speakers as well as the CEO and staff from the Victorian Deaf Society - a partner in the delivery.
