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.
