What is BATOD?
BATOD is the sole professional association for Teachers of the Deaf in the UK. The Association represents the interests of Teachers of the Deaf and the children and young people they teach with a range of Government and other agencies. The Association supports Teachers of the Deaf and organises CPD courses and national and regional meetings to provide relevant up-to-date information and to disseminate good practice. BATOD produces a magazine five times per year and a refereed Journal (Deafness and Education International) four times per year. Strong links are maintained between BATOD and Government and voluntary bodies, especially the NDCS, and the Association plays a key role in NatSIP, to contribute to policy development in this field.
