British Dyslexia Association Smart Award presented to South Thames College Alumni

smart award

A2i Dyslexia is a community interest company (CIC) based in Wandsworth working with dyslexics in the local community and their families to give direct support and signpost them to services.

A2i Dyslexia are very honoured to have received the British Dyslexia Smart Award. Elizabeth Takyi, the founder of A2i Dyslexia and South Thames College alumni was diagnosed with dyslexia in her adulthood.

Elizabeth Takyi, CEO of A2i Dyslexia commented: ‘Receiving the BDA Smart Award was the icing on the cake to encourage other dyslexics to believe that they can go on and achieve amazing things in life and make a change. We want to thank the team at BDA for the recognition.’

Helen Doden, CEO of British Dyslexia Association, said: ‘A2i Dyslexia is a shining example of an organisation doing the best work to embrace dyslexia. Smart Award is the perfect way to recognise their achievements to be recognised and it was my honour to present the award to them.’ 

Elizabeth studied with the College in 2011 for the Diploma in Education and Training (DET)/Professional Graduate Certificate in Education and Training (PGCE) (CCCU) - Level 6  . Having dyslexia herself, Elizabeth found the teaching at the College excellent as it was clear and concise and she benefitted from the one to one support from tutors.  The course helped her to become a confident teacher upon graduating as it gave her knowledge and skills in creating lesson plans and schemes of work.

South Thames College work in partnership with Aspire2Inspire Dyslexia provides many opportunities for our learners to succeed and we look forward to further collaboration on innovative projects in the future.
