This course will be delivered via Online Recorded Video, and you will not be expected to attend a specific venue
This online training course is aimed at all frontline staff to increase their awareness, knowledge and skills in relation to working with people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
The course is designed to raise awareness of the barriers facing people who are deaf or are hard of hearing. It also highlights how practitioners can adjust their behaviour and create conducive environments to improve communication with people who are deaf or are hard of hearing.
The course is delivered via a pre-recorded (voice over) Powerpoint presentation which can be viewed multiple times. There are also various activities and a case study to engage the learner. The course requires the completion and return of a workbook which serves to foster a deeper level of learning.
The video (YouTube) can be viewed on all digital platforms (including mobile phone) and can be viewed independently or as a small group (dependent on organisational social distancing policy) so please ensure you have YouTube installed.
The course also contains video links to the internet; thus, internet access is required.
The workbook comes in a Word document format so access to Microsoft Word is required.
Handouts are provided in PDF format which are accessible via a screen reader if required.
Course links and materials will be sent by midday on the day of your course.
Ideally each delegate should have their own personal/work email address on their East Sussex Learning Portal user account. Where this is not possible, please be advised that it is the responsibility of each training delegate’s line manager to forward these documents to them, so they have them in time for their training.
The course can be accessed from 9.30am on the date scheduled. Delegates can complete the course at any time during the week but must submit the workbook by 5pm on the Friday after the scheduled course date.
Allocate approx. 2-4 hrs to complete the course. Speed of course completion depends on the learner.Essential Information
