Building a Positive Future
The Training Programmes in Deonach is delivered in a dynamic learning environment. We believe our educational programme to be distinctive in terms of the range of supports offered. A range of social and developmental programmes are incorporated into the timetable to ensure that all people who begin their education at Deonach can achieve their potential. Some of these include outdoor education programmes, sporting activities and cultural trips. Additional support is given in literacy, numeracy and resource teaching. All people who attend our training programme can access our therapeutic space. We believe our programme prepares our participants very well for opportunities and challenges in their future.
