    Deaf Awareness Training Overview

    1 to 1 Live Tutor Support Included | Accredited by CPD | Interactive One Day Training

    Deaf Awareness Training: a powerful tool that promotes inclusion and improves access for deaf people and those with hearing loss.

    Deaf Awareness Training Course Description:

    This Deaf Awareness programme is a general introduction to deafness. Its purpose is to provide information and strategies that will enable individuals to understand a range of deaf issues and use the knowledge gained to communicate more effectively with those from the hard of hearing through to the profoundly deaf.

    It is designed for anyone in a work or social capacity who has the potential to come into contact with deaf people, for example, banks and retail staff, care workers, education and training bodies, emergency services, hospital and health centre staff, housing associations, legal services, public sector workers, support organisations, theatre and cinema staff, transport bodies and breakdown services, friends, family members and partners, whilst also being a valuable first step for people planning on becoming a communication professional.

    The programme will equip the reader with awareness skills that when applied will reduce the barriers arising from the communication difficulties between hearing and deaf people.


    In Deaf Awareness Training you’ll learn about:

    The importance of deaf awareness, being deaf, different experiences of deafness and hearing loss: you’ll experience different perspectives of deafness to enable you to understand how it affects individuals.

    A history of deafness: we look back through history and consider how attitudes and policies impact on deaf people, then and now.

    Deaf culture and sign language: you’ll gain an insight into unique communities who identify not as a group with a disability but as cultural minorities with their own languages.

    Equal access: we look at why equal access is important, the effectiveness of lipreading, guidance on good communication and adjustments related to deafness.

    Some commonly available communication aids and support – from qualified communication-support professionals to technology such as real-time speech-to-text.


    Accredited by CPD

    CPD is Recognised by Employers


    Areas for discussion:

    • Understand how to remove communication barriers
    • A personal experience; how it is to live with a hearing loss
    • Strategies for improved communication
    • Managing your environment and improve accessibility to your services
    • Understand the current hearing technologies to help you understand how hearing loss impacts 11 million people who are affected in the UK

    Meet the Trainer

    Adam Linsdell

    Hello. My name is Adam and I am a British Sign Language Teacher. I am Deaf and have been using British Sign Language since I was a teenager. My personal experience of Deafness was my primary reason for learning BSL and why I have such a deep passion for this beautiful and expressive language.

    I have studied BSL to NVQ Level 6 and trained to become a teacher, enabling me to achieve my dream of teaching BSL in my local community. This opportunity has enabled me to work with the local Deaf community, building strong relationships and links.

    I have taught sign language throughout Cambridge, teaching at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge Regional College, Cambridgeshire Deaf Association and Cottenham Village College. Usually, I teach face to face but due to the COVID pandemic, my classes moved online – this has been a new experience and a great opportunity for me and my learners.
