Hello, my name is Mumtaz Butt and I am the home-school liaison officer at Delius. I am also a HLTA and spend 2 and a half days in class. In the past we at Delius have run lots of different courses such as Beauty, Hair, Manicure and Pedicure courses and ICT. These were very successful, we had up to 20 plus parents attending. Feedback from the parents this year was that they would like to do some more practical/academic courses. I offer help and advice on filling out forms such as disability and housing etc.. If you have any problems and need a translator in Urdu or Punjabi then do not hesitate to contact me. You are always welcome to pop in just for a chat.
