DEAF AWARENESS TRAINING
YOU CHOOSE I TEACH, you'll find online tutoring with flexible options to meet your specific requirements. All of our tutors are deaf or have hearing loss and use BSL as their first or preferred language. This means they are able to use their personal experience of the barriers deaf people face every day.
YOU CHOOSE I TEACH is a UK agency that specialises in reducing communication barriers between public facing organisations and deaf customers through training consulting and access solutions. Working with a wide range of public and private sector organisations, YOU CHOOSE I TEACH has established a national reputation for improving the way organisations communicate and deliver a better standard of service to deaf people. Our team consists of both deaf and hearing members, offering genuine skill and expertise when training others in interacting with deaf people face to face, non-verbally or through technology.
Do you or your employees have regular contact with adult learners, adult learners or colleagues who are deaf or have a hearing loss?
Being deaf aware is a great way to show good business practice. In our research, more than 7 in 10 hearing aid wearers said they'd be likely to choose a business or service which had deaf aware staff over a competitor that didn't.
Our deaf awareness training course will improve your communication skills and confidence — helping you to break down the barriers faced by people who are deaf or have a hearing loss.
By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Identify situations in your organisation where people who are deaf or have hearing loss might face communication barriers
Identify solutions to improve accessibility in your business
Understand a range of communication methods used by people who are deaf or have hearing loss
Demonstrate and build confidence in communicating with people who are deaf or have hearing loss
This course is CPD (Continuing Professional Development) accredited, so all course adult learners will receive a certificate of attendance.
