Why Deaf Awareness Training Course right for you?

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.

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.

For CPD accredited PDF certificate it will take 24 hours, however for the hardcopy CPD certificate takes 5-7 business days and for the Quality License Scheme certificate it will take 7-9 business days.
