About The Auslan Company

Established in 2004, a Deaf man named Darren Roberts founded The Auslan Company after completing his Bachelor of Education (LOTE) Auslan at LaTrobe University with the goal of providing the community with more opportunities to learn Auslan. Today with over 20 Auslan teachers on our books, we are the only privately Deaf owned and non-government funded Auslan training organisation in Australia.Β We offer basic introductory courses to more individually tailored courses that can suit all levels and needs of the community, families, schools, kindergartens, and workplaces to learn Auslan in a relaxed and friendly way.

In 2020, we created Learn Auslan Online. A completely online Auslan learning experience. These courses are prerecorded video so there is nothing to go to and you can learn Auslan at your own pace and at times that are suitable for you.Β In a little over 12 months Learn Auslan Online have received enrolments from a wide array of people including: emergency services staff, hospital staff, primary school teachers, childcare educators, university students, families with deaf children, workplaces with deaf colleagues / customers and people just wanting to learn Auslan for fun and to learn a new skill.

Our passionate and committed Auslan teachers deliver Auslan in a fun and informative way that will give you the foundation skills to communicate with any Deaf person in a social or workplace setting.
