Deaf Friendly Swimming Training Opportunity

Please find attached information on two upcoming training courses, ‘Making Swimming Deaf-Friendly’ and ‘British Sign Language for Swimming’. The workshops will support swimming teachers and coaches to make simple changes to make activities deaf-friendly and develop confidence communicating with deaf children and young people. The courses are free and strong priority will be given to teachers and coaches who commit to all three workshops.
