Centre for Deaf Education

From BSL to English skills and from lipreading to computing, we provide a large choice of courses and services for D/deaf people in Covent Garden.

We've offered courses for deaf people right from the start - some of our very first courses were lipreading for deafened soldiers returning from World War 1. 

Over the years the City Lit Centre for Deaf Education has grown to become an internationally-renowned centre of excellence in a wide range of provision  - the largest centre of its kind in Europe.

Below you can find a list of the types of courses and services we provide.  You might also be interested in finding our about our annual Deaf Day event, which takes over the whole City Lit building.  Every year thousands of people come to find out and exchange information, meet friends and generally have a great time.
