Event description

Description

Free lunch and refreshments included in the day.

The National Deaf Children’s Society is hosting a free information day, to help employers and organisations make their recruitment processes and workplace accessible to deaf young people.

Whether you offer paid employment, apprenticeships or opportunities through work experience or volunteering, this information day will be relevant.

This hands-on session is both interactive and practical. You will learn about your obligations under the Equality Act, and practical things you can do in the workplace to meet those responsibilities. You will also gain the skills and confidence needed to help you communicate with deaf young people, and support them in your setting.

This event is being delivered as part of our Deaf Works Everywhere campaign which launches in February 2020. On the day, we would love to get your views on how we can best reach out to employers through our campaign.
