Adulthood (19-25 years of age)

Welcome to our adulthood (19-25 years of age) programme. Our students work towards qualifications and begin to transition into the world of work or university. Students on this pathway complete college qualifications with one of our partnered colleges, Bicton, or Exeter College with the aid of Communication Support Workers (CSWs) who attend their lessons.

Exeter College, rated Outstanding by Ofsted, offers over 40 A-level subjects and vocational courses including childcare, construction, and sports.

Bicton College is a specialist vocational training college. Their courses are designed to train students towards specific careers. Courses include animal care, wildlife and conservation, and adult social care.

Both Bicton and Exeter College are in proximity of the Deaf Academy. Students receive timetabled lessons in the Academy that aid their learning, linked to their chosen course.

Residential students stay in our on-site accommodation and are supported by our friendly and trained Residential Care Team. Our students enjoy many extra-curricular activities and we welcome you to come and visit us to find out more.
