Posted 1 year ago

The capacity of the teachers currently placed at Wangsel Institute for the deaf was and continues to be built through professional development training provided by international volunteers which enhances the knowledge, information, appropriate teaching strategies and skills of teachers, and there is a sharing of global good practice in deaf education. Bhutan does not have any local professionals (Teachers/Teacher Educator/lecturers/professors) or deaf education specialists who are certified teacher trainers in deaf education. The teacher training colleges of Bhutan currently does not deliver courses on deaf education. Therefore, Wangsel Institute requests an Australian Volunteer to support the training of the teachers of the deaf in the field of deaf education.
