NESS’s Sensory Awareness Training has moved online

NESS is pleased to announce the launch of our new e-learning Sensory Awareness Training.  Having trialled it for a few weeks, we are now ready to share it further.

Designed to replicate as much of our one day, face-to-face training as possible, our Sensory Awareness Training (or sight loss and hearing loss awareness training), raises awareness of the practical and emotional impact of sight loss and/or hearing loss, while introducing some of the ways that someone with a sight and/or hearing loss might maintain their independence.  It provides a comprehensive overview of sight loss and hearing loss, including Deafness and deafblindness, giving you the knowledge and the confidence to be supportive and inclusive of people with a sensory impairment.  More information is on our website (opens in a new window).

The e-learning is hosted on our new training website. You can book onto the training by completing the Booking Form (opens in a new window) and we will email the link to the e-learning site and with log in details.  Please note, it may take a couple of days for us to process the booking.

When booking, you will be asked to choose the date of the video conference that you would like to attend.  We highly recommend that the e-learning is completed prior to the video conference.  The video conference is designed to replicate, as much as possible, the discussion elements that would normally take place during face to face training.  It will provide an opportunity for you to discuss what you have learned and explore some of the issues a little bit further in a small group. It is also an opportunity for you to share your personal and professional experiences of sensory loss, and link what you have learned to your work practice.  Groups attending the video conference will be kept small so it is easier to interact with each other.

The training costs £40 to complete, which includes the e-learning and the video conference.

Please get in touch if you have any further queries about the new training, and please feel free to pass this training onto anyone you think may be interested in completing the training.
