Training opportunity: final places remaining

VocalEyes have raised funds to help us offer subsidised audio description and visual awareness training to London museums.

A two-day course will be taking place in London on Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 May 2018

Audio description and visual awareness training course overview

This two-day training course combines visual awareness and audio description training delivered and supported by two trainers – an experienced audio describer and a blind/partially sighted visual awareness trainer.

Delegates will expect to come away with the following outcomes after training:

  • Visual awareness: learn how to identify the barriers facing blind and partially sighted visitors who are visiting the site; be able to welcome blind and partially sighted visitors; be able to guide blind and partially sighted visitors; and be able to employ other senses to support blind and partially sighted visitors.
  • Audio description training: learn the principles of audio description; learn how to develop audio description notes for use in delivery of live audio description tours of temporary exhibitions and permanent displays; increase understanding of audio description to feed into the development of new programming strands for all visitors.

The training days will run from 9.45am – 4.00pm, and delegates must be able to attend both days of the course.

The cost per delegate is £180, inclusive of VAT. Up to two places are available per museum. 

Places are strictly limited, so please respond as soon as possible to secure a booking:
