About Deaf Awareness Training

Available in the following locations:
  • Edinburgh and The Lothians

We have designed all of our Deaf Awareness courses so that you leave with improved communication skills, a greater understanding of the barriers and issues that deaf* people face in their every day lives, how to ensure that your organisation is fulfilling it’s legal responsibilities and how to make your services as accessible as possible to the 1 in 5 people living in Scotland who are deaf.

There are many reasons why people attend our Deaf Awareness Courses:

  • They contribute to improved accessibility for deaf people
  • They increase staff confidence and enhance communication with deaf customers and colleagues
  • They provide equal opportunities for deaf employees

We only use qualified and experienced deaf or hard of hearing tutors for all of our deaf awareness courses and have produced a booklet for attendees to take home and keep as a reference guide.

All of our Deaf Awareness courses are interactive with group work, engaging role plays and a relaxed, informal environment that encourages learning, questions and an open attitude!

Our 2 day course is accredited by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and qualifies for ILA Scotland funding.
