National Institute for the Deaf

Transforming the education and training of deaf youth through blended learning, to provide them with access to the hearing workplace.

The aim

To prepare increasing numbers of deaf students for further education and training and to improve access to quality occupational and vocational training.

The project

The National Institute for the Deaf (NID) enlisted the help of Danie Kok on an innovative journey to introduce technology (blended learning) and develop deaf-accessible skills-training programmes.

The results

The project is ongoing, but students who completed the inaugural Links4Life bridging programme have shown vast improvements in numeracy, literacy, communication and critical thinking skills.

For more detailed information on case studies, contact Danie Kok.
