Ricci Collins

School of Humanities, Language & Global Studies


Ricci is an innovative and dynamic lecturer in British Sign Language and Deaf Studies. He previously worked at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) for 3 years, from 2005 to 2008, as a research project officer, researching into the curriculum for teaching British Sign Language (BSL). Ricci has now returned to UCLan after teaching in a sixth form college for 10 years, which involved supporting deaf learners and learners with additional leaning needs to move towards the mainstream curriculum and to increase their employability potential. Ricci returned to UCLan in 2018 when an unexpected opportunity arose, and he was offered his first lectureship.
