EMPLOYMENT SUPPORT

Positive Signs can provide customised training for your staff and colleagues to enable effective interaction and engagement between deaf and hearing people in the workplace, at meetings or other events.

Training includes:

  • Deaf Awareness Training
  • How to use an interpreter or other communication service
  • Learn2Sign – basic sign language courses for the workplace.

Deaf and hard of hearing employees are entitled to Access to Work (AtW) – a government-funded scheme that provides communication services for use at work. Positive Signs can advise on the process, provide the communication services needed and manage the paperwork involved.

As part of Positive Signs’ investment in young deaf people and the employment sector generally, ‘Deaf Apprentice’ was established in 2012 and is unique in creating opportunities for, and successfully placing, deaf people in a wide variety of apprenticeships.  Employers, training bodies and Deaf people are very welcome to contact us to find out more
