In collaboration with Signature (Commercial) we were kept on the ‘right tracks’ by delivering a full day Get Deaf Aware including Communication Tactics with Deaf & Deafblind people and an introduction to work-based BSL.
Many thanks to all involved, the day went extremely well with everyone participating and enjoying the experience.
We presented two learning & development sessions for members of staff at South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) in Sheffield on behalf of Signature ‘Get Deaf Aware’ programme.
The first course focused on deaf awareness and communication tactics with deaf & deafblind people for staff members who deal with members of the public by phone as well as front-facing services.
The second was working with staff members who frequently dealt with members for the public and covered mainly communication skills with deaf & deafblind people.
Many thanks for the warm welcome from HMP Durham staff who attend the Get Deaf Aware/Intro to British Sign Language course.
Great day had by all – informative and fun thanks to their willingness to participate and learn.
Feedback of staff attending was really good and I personally feel we all gained a better understanding of how we interact ….
Please pass on a massive thank you to Andy for putting up with us we are not the brightest bunch!
Many thanks to the staff of the Department of Maths, Statistics and Physics for their participation in training a training session specifically aimed at communication with people with cochlear implants.
