Helen Cota and Delma Mulhern attended an international tour guide training programme in Rome 19th – 26th September 2017. They were joined by a number of Deaf colleagues from Italy, Spain, Turkey and Romania.
The “Sign Guide” project aims to provide a Tour Guide certificated course for deaf and hearing impaired in Turkey. It is hoped to create a new employment area for hearing impaired people and will give importance to sign language in a new vocational education area. It will help create a workforce that can adapt to evolving technology.
The project will give deaf learners experience in another countries cultural and regional linguistic diversity from a professional perspective.
