Centre for deaf education

Build has provided support for deaf people at its heart right from our establishment, in 1919. Some of the first courses ever offered by Build were lipreading classes for deafened soldiers returning from World War I. Over the years, we have grown to become an internationally-renowned centre of a wide range of provision - it is the largest centre of its kind in Europe.
