Auslan Training at NMIT offers flexible options for students wanting to learn Australian Sign Language (Auslan) which is the language of Australia’s deaf community.

Our courses will enable you to communicate effectively with deaf and hard of hearing children and adults.

NMIT’s Auslan program provides flexible training solutions to meet the learning needs of a diverse range of student backgrounds, which include:

  • adults aspiring to work with the deaf community as an Auslan interpreter – this course is pre-requisite to interpreter training
  • parents of deaf and hard of hearing children whose children most benefit from communicating in Auslan
  • adults who work with deaf and hard of hearing people in the community and want to enhance their every day communication to provide an inclusive workplace
  • deaf or hard of hearing adults who want to acquire Auslan skills to communicate with deaf people who use Auslan or to enhance their accessibility in the community
  • professionals wanting to provide services to communicate directly with deaf and hard of hearing clients
  • anyone who loves learning a new language

Features of the NMIT Auslan Training courses are:

  • flexible, student-centred delivery
  • innovative, best practice teaching
  • multi-modal delivery including face-to-face teaching, online and video conferencing
  • accessibility to anyone wanting to use Auslan.

All courses will initially be delivered at NMIT’s Collingwood campus and expanded to include locations throughout Melbourne and regional centres across Victoria in 2014.

Students will acquire a range of skills and knowledge including:

  • deaf community and culture
  • deaf history
  • Auslan linguistics
  • simple to specialised Auslan communication skills

All our teaching staff are highly skilled in Auslan teaching pedagogy and our courses offer a range of flexible and online delivery options which complement compulsory classroom teaching.
