What is Deaf Awareness?
Well... it's about knowing what appropriate communication skills to use when in contact with people with any form of hearing loss, be it at work, social or even at home.
All three courses cover facts and information about everyday situations, involving accessibility, communication barriers, how to identify different groups including tips on how to engage more effectively.
Of course there are many people who perhaps will require specific training or hours to suit their employees or those who are genuinely interested and want to increase their confidence and knowledge. If you need specific tailor made courses do get in touch, we will be happy to design one for you.
We have three popular levels available to choose from.

This is DA1 with an additional 2 hours basic introduction to British Sign Language. We have found that many people want to learn a little more so have introduced some basic BSL tools. This is a useful confidence building session where you learn fingerspelling and how to use language upon meeting any deaf people for the first time.
DA3 follows the curriculum set by Signature (Awarding Body). It is a two day course where home study will be required. On completion and passing the exam, a certificate will be given. This is more for those who want to know more indepth details about Deafness as a whole.
