Many will experience significant barriers, including a lack of specialised information regarding higher education or work options, imposed low expectations from the professionals and adults supporting them and a lack of financial support.

This course sets out to help teaching professionals to better understand the difficulties facing Deaf learners during this time and support their learners in reaching their full potential as adults.
