Minister response to GCSE in BSL

Added 14 Sep 2017

We were incredibly disappointed to see Schools Minister Nick Gibb’s response to the NDCS’ Right to Sign campaign here.

Although this is not the first time we have seen such a response from the Department for Education, we will not be detracted from our ongoing work to develop (what we hope will become) a GCSE in BSL. While other Signature qualifications are available to students, it’s disappointing that a GCSE in BSL is not receiving the support it deserves from the Government.

Signature firmly believes in the importance of deaf children being able to gain a GCSE qualification in their native language, and more young people being given the opportunity to learn BSL.
