Meet Megan’s new four-legged study companion

March 01 2021

A student at Newark College is set to have a new study companion after being allocated a dog by the charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Megan, who is studying L3 Media Studies, is profoundly deaf and will soon be joined at college by Jin, who is being trained by the charity.

Jin visited Newark College for the first time recently and when she has completed her training, will accompany Megan into lessons. 

Staff at Newark College said it was immediately noticeable to see the visual and behavioural changes in Megan with Jin - she was more confident, constantly smiling and continually talking and animated.

Even in a few weeks Megan said she could assess the impact Jin has made and said she feels less lonely and has a purpose to life. 

Penny Taylor, Advanced Curriculum Coach at Newark College, said: “We look forward to seeing this progress continue and can't wait for students to all be back in college and Jin to be here on a regular basis. 

“Our support for students comes in a variety of forms so we are delighted to put the necessary procedures in place to support Megan in becoming more independent.” 

Martin Booth, Director of Education and Training, at Newark College, said: ‘It was a joy to see Megan so happy and we are eager to assess the impact of how Jin can support Megan in her studies and daily life.”
