British Sign Language

Our new and exciting online Learning Hub for teachers is now available!

Signature Learning Hub contains webcast teacher training for BSL Level 1 and Level 2. The training is perfect for teachers delivering Signature qualifications.

We know from your feedback that face to face training isn’t always convenient and that many of you haven’t been able to attend our training days. Our research indicated that online training was the way forward because you can access this training at any time. We want ALL teachers to have access to our new training so we have worked with a team of BSL consultants to develop this fresh, stimulating and innovative facility.

We will be developing the Learning Hub further so, in future, all of our teacher training will be available online.

For more information on the Learning Hub and fees please visit www.signaturelearninghub.co.uk.
