Online Courses

We are delighted to now offer online courses! This is the perfect option if you are unable to gather everyone in the same place at the same time, for continued professional development away from the work-place or even for online team and skill building.

Why choose Manchester Deaf Centre?

There are plenty of online courses out there, but how many of them are taught in real time by a qualified, experienced teacher? The refreshing thing about our online courses is that they are live and interactive. You will be taught by one of our wonderful teachers who is a native British Sign Language user, again adding to the authenticity of the training.

"Jonathan was great, and we got into communicating early on, which made the course real and enjoyable. I enjoyed the structure and the lessons were very applicable, which allowed us to begin to put together short sentences."
