Signature is a national charity and the leading awarding body for deaf communication qualifications in the UK. With almost 40 years’ experience, we’ve supported more than 450,000 people to learn British Sign Language. All Signature qualifications are nationally recognised and accredited by Ofqual (The office of the Qualifications and Examinations regulator). In 2019 Signature was announced as the winner of ‘Awarding Organisation of the year’ by the Federation of Awarding bodies.
