Course outline

Course title Deaf Awareness Course
Course Content  

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 Adult Education 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, a Certificate of Attendance will be issued upon completion of the course. This is an ideal introduction to our full Level 1 course.
