The purpose-built centre provides placement for secondary-aged hearing impaired students of East Devon. It is equipped to support the children both educationally and audiologically, and staffed by qualified Teachers of the Deaf and Teaching Assistants. The centre links with a range of outside agencies, including Devon’s support and advisory teams, primary and secondary schools with HSCs in East Devon, audiology departments and cochlear implant centres.
The Hearing Support Centre works towards inclusion within the full life of the College, wherever possible, and this is supported with a developing range of communication methods and language support. The Centre supports students throughout the College including Post-16 (sixth form). Deaf Awareness is provided for new members of staff and teachers in training. The Centre also supports teachers training for their Teacher of the Deaf Post Graduate Diploma.
