Opportunity to train as lipreading tutor – Leicestershire

Do you live in the Leicestershire area and like the opportunity to train as a lipreading tutor?

The Leslie Edwards Trust, thanks to an unexpected donation, is offering the opportunity with the aim of providing adult classes in the Leicestershire area.

People with hearing loss can often find it difficult to understand conversation fully in many circumstances – despite using hearing aids. Through this opportunity, the Trust aims to help help hearing impaired people in the area to improve their communication skills and avoid the isolation that arises from poor communication with family, friends and work colleagues.

If you are willing to take on a one year distance learning course that results in a professional qualification to teach lipreading and communication skills, the Trust would like to hear from you. The trained tutor will be expected to run classes for the Trust once qualified.

The cost of course fees, travel and books will be covered by The Leslie Edwards Trust. If you would like to find out more about this challenge, please contact us on
