Bluebird22 Posted March 23, 2016 Share Posted March 23, 2016 For years I've wanted to take the final part of my BBO teaching qualification but it's just been out of my price range. I've managed to complete my IDTA qualifications as they are much cheaper. I recently inherited a bit of money so financially it's now manageable. My dilemma: I lost my voice 14months ago and it just never came back. I've tried speech therapy, had nasoscopys, chest X-Ray's, hot lemon, honey, salt water everything with no avail. Apparently it's stress related. I've carried on teaching, I've taken no time off and still entered kids for exams. To all intents and purposes I can still do my job albeit quietly and at times it is difficult (I can't shout, even phone calls are out of the question). Is there any point me going to the interview for the course or will my voice automatically rule me out? I've not mentioned it in any communication so far. I'm worried that even if I am accepted my result will be lower than my vocally able counterparts. I wouldn't class myself it as a disability just something I've learnt to deal with. Any help and advice, the more honest the better! And if anyone has experience in higher education... Thank you in advance Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
