NATED is a network of professionals and students which provides an excellent way to share information and gain support when working with Deaf People.

Events are open to everyone with an interest and are valuable both to those new to this area of work, and to people with years of experience looking to enhance their practice. May sees both a UK conference in Durham and a meeting of the Scottish branch of NATED in Glasgow.

The NATED & ACSW Annual Conference and AGM 2011 is on Saturday 14th May at New College Durham. The fee to attend is £75 for members and £100 for non members. Speakers will address a variety of relevant topics including: training for interpreters and communication support workers;  notetaking; language modification; and mental health issues. Full details can be found on the NATED website.

The next NATED Scotland meeting is on Friday 20th May at City of Glasgow College.  The meeting will focus on voiceover training (i.e. where an interpreter voices in English what a Deaf student is signing). For futher details, visit the NATED Scotland site. Attendance is free, but please contact a member of the committee to let them know if you intend to go.
