Deaf Awareness course

Our Deaf Awareness course provides an insight into deaf issues and the methods used to support communication.

You may be surprised that to learn that one in six people in the United Kingdom is deaf or has some degree of hearing loss - that's around 10 million people. This means that you are likely to come into daily contact with people who are partially or totally deaf, whether at work or in public.

Our Deaf Awareness course provides a basic knowledge of the communication issues that affect deaf and deafblind people.
