There are 10 million people who are deaf or who have hearing loss in the UK. Do you or your employees have regular contact with customers or colleagues who are deaf or who have a hearing loss? Being deaf aware is good business practice and will attract more business. The charity Action on Hearing Loss have found in their research that 7 in 10 hearing aid wearers would choose a business over a competitor if the staff were deaf aware. We are offering Deaf Awareness training courses which can be held on site at your workplace or at The Dormston Centre.
At the end of the course you will be able to;
- Identify and implement solutions where people who are deaf or have a hearing loss face accessibility and communication barriers
- Recognise and respond to the different ways people who are deaf or have a hearing loss communicate
- Understand and demonstrate how you can engage and communicate with people who are deaf or have a hearing loss
Our Deaf Awareness course is a half day course that runs over a three-hour session, The course will be delivered online via Zoom. This is an ideal introduction to our full Level 1 course.
