Professional Development

There are courses and trainings to support you with teaching NZSL. NZSLTA organises a national NZSL teaching conference biennially and local workshops are given once in a while. If there isn't one in your area, attend one in another area.

Victoria University of Wellington offers the country's only course for sign language teachers: Certificate in Deaf Studies: Teaching NZSL. Tertiary institutions around New Zealand also offer a range of courses in teaching school children and second language teaching to adults e.g. BA in Teaching, MA in Applied Linguistics.
