Signature Level 1 Award in Deaf Awareness and Communication
- Qualification aim
This qualification is designed to provide introductory knowledge and skill for enhancing communication with deaf people.
- Qualification structure
To achieve the full Level 1 Award in Deaf Awareness and Communication, learners are required to achieve two units.
Unit K101 is the theory unit, and Unit T101 is the practical unit. Units can be taken in any order and can be achieved separately.
- K101 Deaf and Deafblind Awareness
This nationally recognised, accredited course offers students the opportunity to gain introductory-level knowledge and a basic understanding of deafness, deaf people and their needs. With 10 hours of tuition over 2 days, this is a great course for those who have regular contact with, or have recently started working with, deaf, deafened or hard of hearing people. It is also an ideal companion course to British Sign Language Level 1.
- T101 Communication Tactics with Deaf and Deafblind people
This nationally recognised, accredited course provides an introduction to the skills needed for communicating effectively and confidently with deaf, deafened, hard of hearing and deafblind people. It is a very practical course and is ideal for ‘frontline’ workers, such as reception staff, helping to ensure your organisation is accessible. With 10 hours tuition over 2 days you will receive guidance, tips and hands on experience in a range of communication techniques.
Both courses are run in Worcestershire twice a year. Alternatively you can arrange for the courses to be delivered to you at agreed times and venues (minimum student number required). Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
You can attend either or both courses. The full qualification is awarded on completion of both units. Phone us to discuss your needs on 01905 746301 email firstname.lastname@example.org.
