BSL for beginners is a comprehensive online course developed alongside language experts and Deaf teachers from across the UK. We have drawn on 40 years of experience helping hundreds of thousands of learners to complete a British Sign Language qualification.
Over the duration of this course, you will develop your understanding of BSL and deaf awareness by learning communication tactics and basic signs from subject experts.
The fun and flexible learning style allows you to study at your own pace, your progress will be logged as you go, and sections can be revisited at any time.
When you reach the end of your course, you will receive a link to download your own certificate of completion.
Although this Signature course does not give you an accredited qualification, it is the perfect foundation course before you take a full level 1 qualification! For more information on our qualifications visit Studying with Signature.
Signature is the leading awarding body for deaf communication and language qualifications in the UK. Since beginning our work to promote and teach British Sign Language (BSL), we have supported more than 480,000 people to learn the language.
Our course will be delivered by Deaf teachers, with many years of experience teaching BSL and is a great platform for students to go on and take a qualification.
We want to encourage more people to continue their BSL journey, we want more people to gain a qualification and more people to be confident signers.
