Supporting deaf students in post-16 settings: a training day for Teachers of the Deaf

Supporting deaf students in post-16 settings: a training day for Teachers of the Deaf

Wed 12th Jul, 2017

NDCS, Castle House, 37-45 Paul Street , London EC2A 4LS

9.30am - 5.00pm

Are you a Teacher of the Deaf who needs to better understand how to support post-16 students?

Since the Children and Families Act 2014 local authorities are responsible for supporting young people with SEN and disabilities up to 25. This means sensory support services have a greater role in supporting deaf students in further education.

NDCS Training have designed a one-day workshop to help teachers ensure that deaf young people are given the best possible support in post-16 settings such as further education colleges and apprenticeships. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss how to adapt to meet the needs of post-16 students and to develop a stronger understanding of the post-16 education context.

The main themes include:

  • Understanding the range of post-16 providers that exist
  • Differences in supporting post-16 students compared with under-16s
  • The content of 16-19 study programmes including Maths and English
  • Supporting young people on apprenticeships
  • Information and advice on supporting an effective transition to post-16 education and employment
