Our students were proud to be a part of the team visiting the House of Lords earlier this year as part of the Midlands Colleges Parliamentary Reception.

The event, which took place in the Cholmondeley Room and Terrace with in the House of Lords, was organised by the Skills Education Group to celebrate the work of Midlands colleges both mainstream and specialist.

Alan Robinson, executive principal of Doncaster Deaf Trust, said: “We were thrilled to be a part of the group visiting the House of Lords for this important event.

“Three of our students attended the event to represent Communication Specialist College Doncaster (CSCD).

“Our students were interviewed by Claire Howard about their time at CSCD and what having that specialist education meant to them.

 

“The group spoke confidently how they had developed their independence, Maths, English and work skills. 

 

“They spent time with other colleges and MPs and were really proud that they had managed to have their voice heard in such a prestigious place.

 

“Always advocating the college and our sign language provision our students bumped into Magid Magid, the mayor of Sheffield on the way to the event and taught him to sign his name! All in all it was a very productive and worthwhile day.
