Register now: NZSL teaching conference

This is New Zealand's premium sign language teaching conference. NZSLTA and AUT's interpreting course were set up in 1992, followed by Sign Language Interpreters Association (SLIANZ) and Victoria University's Deaf Studies Research Unit. We have come a long way so let's get together and celebrate 25 years of NZSL teaching, interpreting and development. Check out  www.signsofprofessionalism.co.nz

Early bird registrations are open now until 30th July. There is a special discount for NZSLTA members. Contact your local NZSL tutors branch asap to find out more.
