There are approximately 10 million deaf people in the UK. It is likely that you know at least one of them, because every sixth person you meet will have some degree of difficulty in hearing.
Signature has designed a self-delivered, Get Deaf Aware course to help improve your understanding, awareness and communication skills with deaf people.
Making your school deaf aware offers immediate benefits:
- raise the level of understanding of your teachers, support staff and students
- improve communication within your school
- impact the wider community; family, carers and friends
- meet your obligations under UK equality laws and Ofsted inspections
You can teach the course as part of your PHSE curriculum or run it as an extra curricular activity. It takes less than three hours in total and can easily be offered in short sessions.
Get Deaf Aware is easy to follow, flexible, practical, fun and will ensure that your school is IN THE KNOW!
Everything you need to teach it is included; presentations, training guide, activities, tests and online resources.
