College Preparation Course

RNID – Action on Hearing Loss, Scotland Transitions Project supports young deaf and hard of hearing people, aged 16-25, living in Central Scotland to have a smooth transition from school to college/university and into employment. We provide support to create CV’s, search for jobs or training, complete application forms as well as interview skills. We can also source work experience placements and support to build life skills.

Going to college can be a daunting prospect, young people may be unsure of what to expect. We have organised a College Preparation Course which will take place over 3 days in June to give those thinking of going to college experience of what is involved.

The details are as follows

Dates: 14-16th June 2011
Times: 10am-3.30pm each day
Venue: City of Glasgow College, North Hanover Street Campus, Glasgow

Over the three days potential students will find out more about what attending college entails and what is expected of them, how to work with communication support, what support is available, they will also get the chance to talk to college staff and have a tour of the campus. We plan to hold a social event on the last day where they will get the chance to talk to current students about their experiences of studying.

If you have a young person that may be interested, or would like more information, please contact me, my details are below.
