Deaf & Hearing Trailblazers is a Community Interest Company (CIC) who offer training courses to provide you with new skills and knowledge to improve your potential and enable you to progress further in your work or personal and social life.

Deaf & Hearing Trailblazers provide Kickstart Academy training to young people who are employed in six different organisations. They come together once a week to go through the Skills Builder Essential Skills Academy programme, reflecting on the core essential skills they have been developing through their placement roles.

The programme supports these young people to articulate the skills they have developed for themselves, using the language of the Universal Framework.  This gives a structure to CV writing and interviews, allowing the Kickstarters to identify their own strengths and areas for development.
