Welcome to the deafConnectEd website.
We have information for people who are Deaf or hard of hearing, who are studying or just thinking about study. We also offer information and support to teachers and trainers, interpreters and notetakers, so please visit the different sections of our website and contact us if you have any questions.
We value your feedback, so please get in touch if have any suggestions for our website or our services in general.
In 2021 we continue to provide our core services, which include:
We are also implementing two projects which will explore improved pathways into vocational education and training for learners who are deaf or hard of hearing, and better support options for the Auslan teaching workforce in Victoria. Further details about these projects will be shared as soon as possible.
We also continue to work with our partners in delivering a range of Auslan-related services. This includes ongoing development of new content for Signbank, the online Auslan dictionary, which is supported by funding from the Department of Education and Training. This new content will include signs, definitions and information for key subject areas in Vocational Education, developed in conjunction with Deaf professionals and interpreters working in these areas. The additional content for Signbank will support students and interpreters, as well as Auslan learners.
