Why sign up

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. This includes CPD courses and national and regional meetings to provide relevant up-to-date information and to disseminate good practice. Strong links are maintained between BATOD and Government and in order to maintain our strong credibility in the eyes of the Department For Education and such bodies as Ofqual, it is essential that BATOD represents the great majority of Teachers of the Deaf in the four countries of the UK. If you are not already a member please submit your application so that BATOD can have the weight it needs to influence policy and practice in deaf education.
