QAC has provided education and training for visually impaired people since 1903. Originally part of the Birmingham Royal Institution for the Blind founded 1846, it has been an independent registered charity since 1997.
How is QAC funded?
Student fees are charged to the Young People's Learning Agency, the Residential Training Unit of the Department for Work and Pensions and Jobcentre Plus to cover tuition, accommodation and support costs at QAC.
These fees, however, do not cover major capital projects or much needed items of equipment and resources. We rely on the generosity of friends and supporters to help provide such resources and make things happen. – less
