Deaf Awareness and Communication Skills – another chance to build your capacity

Deaf Awareness and Communication Skills- another chance to build your capacity


Organised by HTDC


This course is for tutors in employability providers. You may already be working with deaf clients or want to ensure that you can improve the accessibility of your provision for adults or young people with hearing difficulties.

There are 2 half day sessions in Hatfield on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th September - participants need to attend both sessions. Session 1 will focus on Deaf Awareness; Session 2 on basic sign language and enhanced communication skills for trainers. This extends the learning covered in the first session and builds upon emerging communication skills as well as developing some basic sign language skills.


Places (one per organisation) will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please send your bookings to
