Event description

Description

There is a growing body of research that shows that learning sign language is great for students literacy and language development, regardless of their hearing ability.

Our Start to Sign training course for Schools will provide you with basic BSL skills to communicate with pupils who are deaf and use BSL or who may have a SPLD. It is a fantastic introduction to BSL, giving you the opportunity to learn more than 90 signs in a day.

Start to Sign at Schools: London Training Day February 14th

Time 09:00 – 14:00

As a teacher, do you or your colleagues work with pupils whose main language is British Sign Language (BSL)?

Learning some British Sign Language (BSL) can help break down barriers and create a friendly and accessible environment.

Our Start to Sign training course will provide you with basic BSL skills to communicate with pupils who are deaf and use BSL. It is a fantastic introduction to BSL, giving you the opportunity to learn more than 90 signs in a day.

Lunch is provided!

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Recognise and apply basic grammatical structures in BSL
  • Use appropriate greetings
  • Communicate your job title/role in BSL
  • Introduce yourself using fingerspelling
  • Hold a brief conversation with a person who is deaf using everyday vocabulary
  • How is the course delivered?

The Start to Sign course is delivered by an experienced trainer whose first or preferred language is BSL. The course duration is one working day, usually 09:00 to 14:00, with an included networking lunch.
