From Doncaster to Europe

Students from Doncaster College for the Deaf, run by the Doncaster Deaf Trust, will soon be able to gain work experience in Sweden, Germany and the Czech Republic over the next two years, thanks to the £60,000 grant the college was recently awarded.

This unique scheme will allow Deaf students to build employment experience and confidence studying and working abroad.

The Spread the Sign initiative is another European project the college is also involved in. It aims to improve communication between deaf people across Europe by creating a comprehensive online dictionary of sign language. The programme was launched four years ago and nine countries are involved.
