Inspiring, nurturing and empowering young people with a vision impairment.

Information Technology

Each student’s IT skills are assessed and a personalised programme is devised to develop their skills across a range of IT competencies.

There is an ever growing range of Apps and devices that enhance the lives of someone with a vision impairment and all students have access to electronic tablets. Students are able to use their mobile phones at school for uses connected with their learning and independence. Every student at NCW is issued with a laptop utilising a Microsoft Operating System – this being a widely used platform in the workplace. Students have the option to use a range of different speech software to suit their differing experience and preferences. Each student is taught to touch type if they do not already have this skill.
