Adult Learning

Available in the following locations:
  • Edinburgh & Lothians

People who are deaf*, or experience any form of hearing loss, often struggle to access learning opportunities because of the lack of communication support and  deaf awareness of course organisers.

Deaf Action’s Adult Learning programme is packed full of different learning opportunities. Our courses are great for skills development and offer a chance to have fun and meet new people. Some of our most popular courses and one-off events have included:

  • Learning about your i-Pad
  • Drama
  • Digital photography
  • IT
  • Patchwork

Interested in doing a course? Contact us to find out more about what we are running at the moment, including:

  • Driving Test Theory
  • English literacy (starting in January 2016)
  • Research your Family Tree

We plan our courses based on demand so if you would like to learn something then contact the Adult Learning Organiser, Leah and we will see what we can do.

All of our Adult Learning courses are delivered in BSL and usually by Deaf or Hard of Hearing tutors. We try to make our courses affordable and so the cost is always very reasonable.

Most of our courses run from our Head Office in Edinburgh – 49 Albany Street, EH1 3QY. However, we can also provide classes, as required, in other locations in the community. Contact the Adult Learning Organiser leah.kalaitzi@deafaction.org for more details.
