Carol Cook -
I am the founder of Don't Shout Out and a CODA (Child Of Deaf Adults). Being raised by Deaf parents, I was witness to the issues, barriers and problems they faced on a daily basis. And this is the reason why I formed Don't Shout Out in 2008. The more people that we teach BSL and Deaf Awareness to, the more that communication barriers will be broken down.
I have been teaching British Sign Language (BSL) courses and Deaf Awareness workshops since 2001 and have been able to bring my own experiences to the courses I deliver.
In both 2009 and 2010, I was awarded the Signature East Of England Teacher Of The Year Award in recognition of my dedication, enthusiasm and achivement throughout my teaching.
In 2014, I completed my NVQ6 BSL qualification and this has proved invaluable to ensure that our students receive the best BSL tuition that we can provide.
I am so lucky to be in a role that I love and I hope that I can welcome you to one of our courses soon.
