Celebrating Role Models in Education/Employment
Today Signature are Celebrating Sponsoring Deaf Awareness Week.
Deaf Awareness week not only challenges perceptions of hearing loss, but also provides countless opportunities to improve accessibility for those who are Deaf or hard of hearing.
At Signature, we are always looking to promote deaf awareness – and we firmly believe that everyone should have at least a basic knowledge of communication. Over the past 12 months it has been fantastic to see so many high profile organisations incorporate Deaf awareness into their training programmes and advertisements.
As we are sponsoring education and employment during Deaf Awareness Week this year, we thought it was important to highlight the need for all customer facing organisations to undertake some basic deaf awareness training. Creating a world without barriers is something that we all want. Becoming deaf aware is a huge step in the right direction!
In addition to offering a Signature qualification in Deaf awareness and Communication, we are proud to work hand in hand with Get Deaf Aware, who are very much leading the way in terms of deaf awareness training. With a variety of available training solutions, Get Deaf Aware have worked with many organisations. Newcastle University, John Lewis, Iceland, Arriva and Transpennine Express are just a few of those.

Happy Deaf Awareness Week to everyone!
