We offer a wide range of training suitable for everyone which could include:

  • Deaf Awareness (DAT);
  • Deafblind Awareness (DBAT);
  • British Sign Language course (BSL Levels 1, 2 and 3);
  • Basic Lip Reading;
  • Hearing Aid Awareness;
  • Communication Tactics; and
  • Taster courses in a range of topics.

Courses are certified by, and offer a recognised qualification from,the awarding bodySignature

We can also tailor, or personalise courses to the needs of organisations or groups of individuals.

All our training staff are expert in their subject but crucially, also have personal experiences of D/deafness in all of its forms. The D/deaf community has a rich culture and history and our trainers reflect this.

Feedback from students of the Pre NVQ Level 3 from March 2011 said:

“I forget I'm in a lesson because it's just like practicing with friends!”

“ DSN provides a relaxed and friendly learning environment. The course provides you with a good foundation of BSL linguistic knowledge enabling you to bridge the gap between level 2 and level 3 NVQ”
