What our Students say

Key Information

Some of the areas we cover in the training are;


• What is the difference between deaf and hard of hearing people?
• What are the different communication methods used by deaf people?
• What is Auslan (Australian Sign Language)?
• Practical tips to ensure interactions with deaf people in your workplace are inclusive and equitable.
• Communication skills for the workplace because good communication skills are universal, and do not just apply to deaf people!

If you have a deaf employee you may be eligible to have the costs of this training reimbursed by the Australian Government through the Employment Assistance Fund.


The Employment Assistance Fund provides Government funding to assist employers of people with disabilities to purchase a range of work related modifications and services. This fund is administered by JobAccess and can be used to pay for access to workplace training and interpreting provided by Deaf Connect to encourage employers to recruit deaf and hard of hearing staff.
