Action Deaf Youth support for school leavers
CSSC School Support Officer, Tracey Woods, attended the Action Deaf Youth employment and training support day for school leavers on Wednesday 22 August.
The event offered advice and guidance for school leavers on what steps to take next and included a panel of deaf young people and professionals discussing their experiences.
Tracey enjoyed meeting Daniel Voss and Chloe McBurney of the British Deaf Association and discussed support for hearing impaired pupils in mainstream education.
Tracey visited several of the information stalls and said,
Action Deaf Youth provide early years and youth services as well as the employment services highlighted at today’s event.
During the event I was able to speak to some of the young people who have benefitted from the opportunities offered by the organisation.
I was particularly impressed with the D’Sign Arts team. They are a charity formed in 2015 to promote participation by deaf people in arts and cultural activities.
This was the first of two free employability events hosted by Action Deaf Youth, with the second scheduled for Tuesday 29 August. For more information contact Action Deaf Youth
