Key Workers

Module main decoration

As a student at the Deaf Academy, you will be assigned a Key Worker. Where possible, you can choose who that person is and if necessary, you can change who that person is during your time here.

Key Workers are responsible for ensuring all aspects of your care needs are effectively met and monitored. They will work with you on your individual Care Plan and your 24 Hour Curriculum. Your Key Worker will liaise with all Academy staff that are involved in your education and care and this includes all involved therapies.

Where necessary, they will also prepare reports (such as your annual review report) for external, as well as internal, professionals. Key Workers are also responsible for ensuring that parents/carers are kept up to date with your daily life as well as any issues that are identified. All Care staff work as a team and as such, you can speak with any member of care staff that you feel comfortable with at that time - it doesn’t necessarily have to be your Key Worker.
