Partnership with other Agencies
In order to support our deaf pupils, the department works in collaboration with various external agencies such as Audiology, Speech and Language Therapy, Psychological Services, Social Work and Skills Development Scotland. We have positive links with deaf agencies such as NDCS, WSDCS and Action on Hearing Loss.
This year representatives from Action on Hearing Loss came into the school to speak to our pupils regarding career choices and college courses. This was then built on by a visit to the University of Glasgow’s Careers Event aimed specifically at deaf pupils.3 of our pupils also attended a taster week in University to experience life as a student.
Our pupils also took part in a Financial Awareness course organised by the Bank of Scotland and some of our senior pupils went on to attend a Budgeting Event organised by Barclay’s Bank.
