Deafness courses will be facilitated by the RNID (www.rnid.org.uk) Employment Training and Skills Service who have a wealth of expertise in the field of deaf and disability awareness. Courses will be run by a tutor but practical sessions ensure a high level of interaction.
This is an introductory course to using BSL (British Sign Language). This course is a slightly more in depth course than the deaf awareness session for staff. You should have attended the awareness raising course either this year or in the past. The one day session aims to improve communication between deaf and hearing staff; and with deaf/hard of hearing customers, students or other people they may come into contact with in their daily work. The course is taught by trainers who are themselves deaf and experienced BSL users.
