Why Choose NDS?

Nottinghamshire Deaf Society (NDS) provides services and a community space for the deaf people of Nottinghamshire, it has a long history of being involved with and supporting that community.

We deliver quality training through our excellent tutoring team. Our qualified and experienced Tutors are Deaf and use BSL as their first language. Each of them has a deep understanding of the language and culture, and teaches with a great deal of skill, knowledge and humour.

Individual learning at NDS means that you will have the unique opportunity to become involved with the Deaf community, students are always welcome to come to our Deaf Social Club and Sign Café where you’ll have the chance to build confidence in your new skills by socialising with Deaf BSL users, and practising signing in the best possible environment.

All our Deaf Awareness and BSL Taster courses are bespoke and can be tailored to meet your individual organisational/employee needs. Our Deaf Awareness training is aimed at organisations that want to improve the service they offer to deaf and hard of hearing people, by developing a clearer understanding of deaf culture and the difficulties deaf and hard of hearing people face.
