Deaf Awareness training is one of our most popular workshops with both corporate clients and individuals. Our bespoke Deaf Awareness training packages are fun and interactive.

For employers, our Deaf Awareness training can help you with making decisions on reasonable adjustments for Deaf employees, as required under the Equality Act 2010. It can also help to facilitate effective communication between Deaf/hard of hearing and hearing employees.

Our training packages are bespoke to each client, and this is something we pride ourselves on. We will develop a training package to meet the specific needs of your organisation

A typical Deaf Awareness workshop covers the following topics:

  • What is deafness?
  • Coping with communication difficulties
  • Basic British Sign Language
  • Deaf culture
  • Lip-reading
  • Tips for effective communication

Whether you have a Deaf employee, and want to facilitate equality of access within the team, or you want to raise the awareness of front of house staff on the communication needs of deaf customers, we can help.

"We had a wonderful experience taking an extended BSL level 1 course taught by Remark! at Google's London offices. I was particularly impressed with our tutor, Lorraine, her enthusiasm and experience made learning BSL even more fun than it would otherwise have been".
