£6k good sign for college

Learners at Communication Specialist College Doncaster have been given a studies boost thanks to a £6,000 donation from the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People (DMTFYP).

The grant has been used to buy a number of Android tablets, which the students will use as part of their British Sign Language classes.

Stacey Betts, the deputy head of communication at the college said it was thrilled to have been given the donation.

“The tablets will enable the learners to access online help and support for their BSL courses and enable them to have the most up to date technology in this area.”

The college is part of charity Doncaster Deaf Trust and relies solely on donations to improve student learning.

Simon Sheehan, director of DMTFYP, said: “The foundation is delighted to support the fantastic work of Communication Specialist College Doncaster. Assisting young people to gain access to education is one of the key aims of the foundation so we are proud to supply the college with tablets, which will support their BSL study.”
