Communication Support Workers (CSWs) work in colleges, universities and sometimes schools, helping Deaf students to communicate with their teachers and other students. They use a variety of support strategies and communication support methods to match the individuals’ needs and preferences. They ensure the student has a good understanding of assignments and can modify written language if needed. All of our CSWs are qualified to at least NVQ level 3 -6 BSL or are graduates from Deaf studies or similar.
The role of a CSW can vary depending on the needs of the individual they are supporting. This can include:
- Helping individuals with understanding and producing written materials
- Adapting learning materials to enable the individual to understand more clearly
- Suggesting ways the environment can be improved to make it easier for the person they are supporting
