As you may be aware, under the Equality Act 2010 all organisations and service providers are expected to make reasonable adjustments to allow Deaf, Deafened, Hard of Hearing and Deafblind people the same access to their services as hearing people.
We run various Deaf Awareness Courses to help you achieve this including:
- Introductory course (2 hours)
- Half-day course (3 hours)
- Signature Level 1 course in Deaf Awareness and Communication (2 full days or 6 x 2-hour sessions over 6 weeks) – for organisations
- Signature Level 1 course in Deaf Awareness and Communication (2 full days or 6 x 2-hour sessions over 6 weeks) – for individuals
Please click on the relevant link on the left to see information about each course.
Courses can be tailored to suit your requirements e.g. you may have a deaf or hard of hearing employee, or want your staff to be able to communicate clearly with deaf and hard of hearing customers. All courses are taught by a hearing impaired tutor so you can start practicing skills learnt on the course straight away.
