Deafway is an approved training centre registered with Signature (previously CACDP – Council for Advancement of Communication with Deaf People) for the provision and assessment of British Sign Language courses.

This part-time department provides 2 main services:

1: Training in British Sign Language through Level 1 and Level 2, both certificated by Signature. These are nationally recognised qualifications. We provide courses on-site at Deafway for public enrolment and additional courses for specific organisations or schools.

2: Deaf Awareness Training for local organisations, mainly in the public sector.
All the above services have run successfully over the last few years and we continue to provide high quality, fun courses.

In addition to the above courses we can tailor/create programmes to meet individual or organisational needs and provide flexible learning opportunities.

For further information about the above courses or to discuss your specific training requirements please contact Ryan Lewis at Deafway on 01772 693413 (minicom), 01772 693416 (fax) or 01772 796461 (voice). Alternatively, please email
