Communication Specialist College Doncaster provides individualised programmes of study for students who are Deaf, hearing impaired, have an Autistic Spectrum Condition or a communication difficulty.
There are a wide range of vocational courses delivered in real work environments preparing students for the world of work. We have a multi-disciplinary approach with on-site therapists and specially trained staff. Students are supported to develop their social and independence skills in college and out in the local community. Our transition pathway ensures students are guided into their future lives with skills to reach their goals and aspirations.
We are a National Specialist College who accept students from our local area or nationally on residential placements.
Vocational pathways provide industry-focused learning environments to prepare students for the work place and ensure they have the core skills required to succeed.
Courses available include: media and office technology, computers, catering and hospitality, construction, horticulture, sports and leisure studies, hairdressing and beauty, health, education and social studies, motor vehicle and employability skills.
Drama, rebound therapy, yoga, smILE therapy (Functional Communication and Social Skills for Deaf Students and Students with Special Needs), assertiveness, independent travel and supported work experience are also on offer.
The students are able to follow personalised timetables which meet their needs, wants and aspirations. The pathways provide opportunities to develop skills that enable students to participate as citizens within the community and where possible within the work place.
All students are given opportunities to develop their social, communication and independent living skills through personalised learning programmes. The holistic approach is aimed at increasing confidence and self-esteem whilst developing the skills they need to express their views and opinions to make informed choices.
