Signs4Life - deaf awareness and sign language workshops in Newham
11 Jul
10-week accredited BSL program Guided learning hours – 30 hours This accredited course is designed to provide a nationally accredited unit of BSL skills for educators, who work with young people and students, who may be Deaf or hearing impaired. Deaf student’s experience of communication when they interface with teachers and support staff can often be disappointing. Staff need to be aware of the isolation and frustration many Deaf students experience in their dealings with the various services that make up further and higher education. For more information, and details of 6-week non-accredited BSL program Guided learning hours – 18 hours, Deaf awareness and sign language workshop Guided learning hours – 3 hours Click here for the flyer, and go to http://www.signs4life.org/

AMS - Statutory Services Forum
Our Attendance Management Service Statutory Service Forum take place regularly, with a programme based upon feedback from those who attend. Our forum usually focuses on one key topic each time, and consists of a mixture of workshops, question and answer sessions, and practice sharing. The aim of our forums is to provide participants with the knowledge and tools to improve their practice in one key area of attendance, as well as providing participants with the space to reflect and discuss practice with peers, practice leads and local authority colleagues. The exact programme for the day is still being put together.
