Our BSL courses are designed to give your staff the skills and confidence to have a basic conversation with customers, clients and colleagues whose first, or preferred, language is BSL.
British Sign Language, also known as BSL, is a visual way of communicating used by Deaf people. It involves a combination of gestures, facial expressions, body language and movement. With one in six people in the UK experiencing deafness or hearing loss, some knowledge of sign language will greatly enhance your customer service and competitiveness.
For over 20 years, our experienced trainers have been delivering CPD-accredited courses at a wide range of workplaces in the public, private and voluntary sectors. Show your commitment to accessibility by booking a Start to Sign or BSL at Work course.
Start to Sign course
Our popular Start to Sign training is available as a half-day or full-day course for up to 12 delegates. It’s a fun and interactive way for your staff to learn a range of signs that will make Deaf people feel more welcome. They’ll quickly find out how to say hello and introduce themselves using fingerspelling. And by the end of both BSL courses, they’ll know how to have a simple conversation.
BSL at Work course
The BSL at Work course offers far more in-depth learning. We’ll provide 18 hours of BSL training as six half-day sessions or three full-day sessions for up to 10 members of staff. Our trainer will work closely with you so the course content matches the specific needs of your business. This could include jargon and terminology known in your business or industry, commonly used names and locations, and abbreviations and acronyms.
