Accessing TeachSign

Posted on 19 Apr 2016

Still want to access more sections e.g. Teach, Resources, Tips? First, you will need to join New Zealand Sign Language Teachers Association (NZSLTA) as a member. It is only $30 a year.

Once you are a member, you can access everything on TeachSign but not units 4-9 resources.

Still keen to access units 4-9? Are you currently in the process of doing 'Certificate in Deaf Studies: Teaching NZSL' or have completed this certificate? Are you in the process of gaining teaching hours or have taught over 200 hours? It looks like you may be either a provisionally or fully qualified tutor. Go to NZSL Teacher > Getting Registered with NZSLTA and fill in the online form with all important documents attached. Or email the NZSLTA National Administrator for a form to fill out (word document).

RAP (Registration Advisory Panel) meets one or two times a year to assess your application. When you send your application, you'll be put on a waiting list to be assessed. Once your application is approved and you receive provisionally or fully qualified tutor registration, then you can start accessing units 4-9 resources.


Non-certified NZSLTA members - can access everything but not units 4-9 (level one) in 'Resources' section.

Provisionally or fully qualified NZSLTA members - can access everything on TeachSign.
