Yesterday, Google caught the attention of millions of people across the UK with its impressive Google Doodle.
The Doodle, a special and temporary alteration of the logo on Google's homepage, celebrated BSL and the famous Braidwood Academy. It featured 6 schoolchildren fingerspelling ‘Google’ and linked to a short, fun video on the history of the world’s first deaf school and the fingerspelling alphabet.
The newest staff team members at Signature have just passed all three assessments to achieve their Level 1 Award in British Sign Language.
We asked them how they got the most out of their training and what advice they would give to new learners.
Signature’s Level 6 Certificate in Working Effectively with Deafblind Manual and Visual Frame and Hands On has been confirmed as an official route to registration by NRCPD.
For almost 40 years, Signature has worked hard to improve communication between deaf and hearing people, which is why we are excited to announce that Signature Level 3 qualifications now qualify as points on the UCAS Tariff Calculator.
On 3 May 2017, we saw another petition campaigning for the addition of BSL to the national curriculum close. In our first ever Signature blog, executive director Lindsay Foster shares her thoughts on the Government’s response the petition and what this means for Signature.
