Deaf Awareness

Have you ever thought that you could be passing or coming into contact with someone daily who is deaf, has lost their hearing, relies on sign language or is deafblind without even realising it. In the UK, one in six people have some degree of hearing loss. That’s around 10 million people. Around 250,000 use British Sign Language (BSL) as their main or preferred communication language. Equally, it is also estimated that there are around 250,000 people who are deafblind or have sensory impairments.

Would you like to better understand the barriers that deaf people face? Would you like to provide a better service for your staff, colleagues or customers? Are you looking to take your first steps to learning about deafness and sign language? Why not sign up for our accredited Signature Level 1 Award in Deaf Awareness and Communication or one of our bespoke programmes.

Accredited Courses

This Signature Award is made up of two units, which we can offer separately or together for the full Award.

We are able to offer this with the assessment and qualification at the end, or if you prefer, as a standalone course with a certificate of completion which reduces the overall cost.

Bespoke Courses

We want you to get what you need from your training, so we offer the opportunity to take the structure of the Signature Award and blend it with your specific need. Are you looking to better serve customers? Are you students in a particular field? Do you have a colleague who is deaf?

We can adjust the length and content of this course to fit with you, your schedule and your budget. If you have any questions please feel free to ask, as we do pride ourselves on delivering this training to meet your needs.

More Information

We are able to offer our courses online (through Zoom or MS Teams, etc) as well as face-to-face when it is allowed. We can also arrange to deliver our training at your premises. If you make this a group booking and/or multiple cohorts, the price can be negotiated lower.

All students from our Deaf Awareness courses automatically qualify for a discount on our other training courses. We also offer Signature sign language courses, from Levels 1 -3.
