If you’ve always wanted to learn sign language, now is your change to give it a try! 👍👏👐
BSL teacher Emily Wakley from Signup BSL is offering a two-day Introduction to BSL Level 1 course at the end of February, with all proceeds going to our New Deaf Academy appeal. The course is perfect for beginners, and will cover topics such as the alphabet, greetings, numbers, basic conversation skills etc. Emily is profoundly deaf, holds an NVQ level 6 in BSL, and is an associate lecturer, module convener and assessor at the University of Exeter.
“SignUp BSL is a social purpose business. Our vision is of a society where Deafness is not a barrier to independence, achievement or fulfilment. We are dedicated to advancing that vision by increasing the awareness and use of BSL in the community, and by being a positive employer of Deaf people. Our goal is to contribute to a more equal society, with improved access for Deaf people, by offering high quality BSL training for individuals and organisations.” – Emily Wakley
This course is unaccredited – participants will study BSL level 1, unit 101 of the Signature course. There will be an opportunity to top-up your course later in the year.
