Deaf Awareness Courses
- Edinburgh & Lothians
We have designed all of our Deaf Awareness courses so that you leave with improved communication skills, a greater understanding of the barriers and issues that deaf* people face in their every day lives, how to ensure that your organisation is fulfilling its legal responsibilities and how to make your services as accessible as possible to the 1 in 5 people living in Scotland who are deaf.
There are many reasons why people attend our Deaf Awareness Courses:
- They contribute to improved accessibility for deaf people
- They increase staff confidence and enhance communication with deaf customers and colleagues
- They provide equal opportunities for deaf employees
We only use qualified and experienced Deaf / hard of hearing tutors for all of our deaf awareness courses and have produced a range of online reference materials which attendees can access any time after the training.
All of our Deaf Awareness courses are interactive with group work, engaging content and a relaxed, informal environment that encourages learning, questions and an open attitude!
We can provide bespoke training sessions to suit all timescales and budgets.
