In the UK one in six people have some degree of hearing loss. This means that you are likely to come into daily contact with people who are deaf or deafblind.
Our online deaf awareness course is aimed at organisations and individuals who want to gain an understanding of deaf awareness, gain life skills to improve their communication and improve their organisation’s accessibility.
This course is provided by Signature, the UK’s leading awarding body for Deaf communication qualifications. It has been created in partnership with The Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID), who help deaf people and people with hearing loss or tinnitus with practical advice about hearing loss, tinnitus and hearing aids.
Our course is a comprehensive online program developed between Signature and RNID to make market-leading deaf awareness training available to everyone. Brought to you by two of the largest deaf charities in the UK, using our collective 150+ years of experience to create a course that helps businesses and individuals to become more accessible. The course will help to improve your communication skills and confidence when speaking to deaf people and those with hearing loss.
All the courses are delivered by people who are deaf or have hearing loss for first experiential learning.
The unique online learning style allows study at your own pace, while the different styles of content keep your training light and engaging.
Pair this with our British Sign Language for Beginners course to increase your understand and basic knowledge of British Sign Language.
Our customisable learning portal allows you to create a branded version (logo and brand colours) of our training course, helping your employees to recognise your brand and relate to it during the course.
