GFE courses provide a comprehensive five-day programme including access to mainstream college vocational and academic courses together with teaching at the Deaf Academy of the core curriculum.

Academy Teachers of the Deaf deliver accredited programmes in English and Maths. British Sign Language (BSL), Personal and Social Development and Work-Related Learning are also taught which build on students’ previous achievements.

We offer a full range of academic courses (eg A Levels) and vocational courses (eg BTEC Diplomas) at Partner Colleges with full support from the Academy’s qualified staff, including dedicated Communication Support Workers (CSWs) and personal tutors.
