Signature Qualifications Review

You need qualifications that give you the confidence to promote and teach. And, trust that they provide the right standard of communication skills for everyone.

We are constantly challenging ourselves and working with the best people to make sure we can give you the qualifications you need.

Is your first language BSL?  Do you have Level 6 BSL signing skills or equivalent and understand grammar and linguistics?  Do you have experience of assessing at that level or can demonstrate equivalent competency?  Working as a Signature External Assessor might be the perfect opportunity for you.


Signature is proud to be supporting Pride Month

31st May 2019

This June marks LGBTQ Pride Month 2019. The first celebration began in 1970, as a way to recognise the one year anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion. Almost 50 years later, thousands of people across the UK come together to celebrate and show support for the culture and rights of the LGBTQ community.


New Qualification Fee’s Structure

02nd May 2019

We continue to review the way we work with our centres to ensure our qualifications and the service we provide are the best they can be.  From 1st of August, there will be two significant changes in the way we charge for our centre approval fees for qualifications.


Feedback from our customer satisfaction survey

16th Apr 2019

I want to thank our centres for taking part in our annual customer satisfaction survey. We had 42% more centres respond to us in comparison to last year; it’s fantastic that so many of you have shared your opinions.

Face-to-face calls. Book your appointment today!

12th Apr 2019

From Wednesday 17th April, we will be offering face-to-face calls to anyone who would prefer to communicate with us using BSL or lipreading.  We have previously offered this service on an ad hoc basis – to much success. We believe that offering set times on a weekly basis will help us offer more communication options to our centres, and the general public.
