Con Powell Scholarship 2022

Posted in News

Applications for 2022

Do you know a teacher who wants to train as a Teacher of the Deaf but whose LA or school is not obliged to provide funding for them? This could be for them!

On behalf of the Ovingdean Hall Foundation and working with the Ewing Foundation, BATOD administers the Con Powell Scholarship, which provides up to five bursaries each year for teachers not currently working with deaf children. The Scholarship currently covers funding* for the course fees at any of the four course providers in England and is open to teachers resident in the UK. In addition, mentoring support is provided from a professional who is experienced in the field of Deaf Education on a regular basis, for the duration of the course and in the first year post-qualification of working as a Qualified Teacher of the Deaf.

* fees do not include cover, accommodation, travel and consumables

The current application period, for courses starting in September 2022, is now open and runs until April 8th.  Interviews will be held in May and successful candidates notified in June. Further details and the Application Form can be found on the BATOD website:


Please do share the information with any friends or colleagues who you think might be interested in this opportunity to train as a Teacher of the Deaf.
