Online Deaf and Hearing Loss Awareness Training in the UK

Lip-reading

At Visualise Training and Consultancy, we understand that when someone is deaf or has hearing loss, it changes their communication needs and their ability to distinguish certain sounds. This never diminishes their value or capability to perform highly skilled tasks within the workplace. Our Online Deaf Awareness Training e-learning package is designed to entertain, inform, and educate, ensuring your team is equipped to interact confidently and respectfully with individuals who have hearing impairments.

The Growing Need for Deaf Awareness

Even mild to moderate hearing impairment can significantly impact a person’s life. According to The Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID), there are currently 12 million people with hearing loss in the UK, a number expected to rise to 14.2 million by 2035. Partial hearing loss in adults and children is increasing, making deaf awareness training more crucial than ever.

Confidence Through Knowledge

Deaf Awareness Training is essential for any business committed to workplace inclusivity. Our e-learning course will provide you with the knowledge needed to comply with UK equality legislation and to support your colleagues and customers effectively.
