Interpreters for the BA Performance in BSL and English
Designed around the learning and teaching needs of the deaf performer, the Conservatoire’s newly launched BA Performance in BSL and English is unique in the UK. The content has been developed in association with Solar Bear Theatre Company with input from a range of theatre, educational and deaf professionals. Our shared aim is to widen the range of trained performers in the UK by providing this opportunity for talented performers from within the deaf community.
We envisage that a combination of fully qualified BSL interpreters, trainee interpreters and communication support workers will be employed to support our students in class, on stage and in rehearsal.
If you think this is something you might like to be involved in and your BSL interpreting skills fit within one of the categories above, get in touch with us via Claire Lamont, Head of BA Performance in BSL and English at firstname.lastname@example.org
At this stage all we are looking for is a note of interest and an indication of the sort of time commitment you could offer the programme from September 2015 until June 2016.
Once we have more information about how we will engage interpreters to support the programme we will be in touch again with those who respond to this call out with more details and information on the formal application process.
