Harrow College is a Centre of Excellence for the Hearing Impaired - the only one in North West London.
The team of communicators support deaf and hard of hearing students in all classes. Also a range of support is available from learning advisors, peer mentors and the Study Plus Club which is run in the Learning Centre on each campus.
The Communication Support Unit provides support for students who are profoundly deaf, partially hearing or visually impaired. Each student will be supported depending on his or her individual need. Support includes sign language, note taking and lip speaking. The Unit offers one to one teaching support as well as access to a range of facilities to support student learning.
"Support for learners with disabilities, dyslexia or sensory impairments, particularly hearing impairment, is good" - Ofsted.
Our aim is to enable all deaf students to have an equal opportunity of access to all parts of college life, thereby achieving their maximum potential.
"Hello from Harrow College Communication Support Unit.
We hope you are safe and well. The CoronaVirus pandemic is a worrying time. Hopefully life will get back to normal soon and we are looking forward to seeing at enrolment at the end of summer.
Our students are still working hard at home. CSU staff are supporting them every day through email, Zoom and Hangouts and recording their class materials in BSL for them to view. This is important to help them complete their work and achieve their qualifications. They are all looking forward to meeting you in September.
We will keep you in touch with any new information.
See you soon!"
