A sign of the times.

COULD you learn the art of sign language? A new initiative to encourage more employees to take up sign language as an extra language and skill is coming to town.

Signs4Life UK is setting up introductory employee courses to help equip people in communicating and dealing with the deaf.

Fozia Parveen, founder of Signs4Life UK, said: "You never know when you will come into contact with a customer or member of the public who is deaf or hard of hearing."

The organisation is hosting the first ever conference on deaf awareness and career progression in Huddersfield in December, called Bridging the Access Gap. For details about the Signs4Life UK employee courses contact Fozia on 07964 019764.
