We offer British Sign Language training to people on a 1:1 individual level and to groups. This can be with the aim of learning it for pleasure/a hobby, to allow you to communicate with friends/family, for work purposes and more! In addition to being trained in British Sign Language, we offer tailored training for the services offered at your workplace/organisation. We provide Deaf Awareness Training and additional training to enable frontline employees to recognise when there is a need for sign language interpreters in areas where more specialised communication is required.
