Maths and English qualifications making a difference to students



Big congratulations go to Imran and Bryan who have been attending our deaf-accessible Maths and English courses and have recently achieved their City & Guilds Level 2 Maths qualifications.

These courses are run at MDC as part of our successful ongoing partnership with the Workers Education Authority (WEA). Imran and Bryan were two of nine learners who completed their courses and passed exams in summer 2022.

The WEA courses are fully supported by BSL interpreters. Learners are supported to learn in a relaxed environment at their own individual level.

Bryan says:

"I enjoyed both the English and Maths WEA courses; it made me feel so much better than staying at home! For me personally the Maths course was easier than the English course as English is my second language. I found that I learned a lot from the WEA English course compared to learning English at school and college as there it was more focused on English as a first language. WEA courses have really improved access for the Deaf Community here at Manchester Deaf Centre – it’s such a difference from being in mainstream education."
