LISTEN: Auchmuty High School pupil teaching Sign Language

Fife College is hosting Sign Supported English (SSE) classes taught by a student from Auchmuty High School on Tuesday evenings.

Layla Cooke will teach those who sign up how to sing different songs in SSE at the college's Kirkcaldy campus.

The 14-year-old is campaigning for a sign language interpreter to be available for at least one date of each location on UK music tours, as well as for British Sign Language (BSL) to be taught in schools.

Layla explains her goals:

Layla, who has hearing loss, has received an award for outstanding achievement from Enable Scotland and a grant worth £500 from the National Deaf Children's Society to start teaching a class.

Layla's mum Suzy Cooke told Kingdom FM News how she feels about Layla teaching:

Classes start on Tuesday 18th February and spaces are still available.
