National Careers Week (NCW) is a celebration of careers guidance and resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education.
A Signature qualification can set you on the path to a number of careers from a becoming Sign Language teacher to becoming a TV presenter.
To coincide with National Careers Week we are excited to share with you our new career pages, which goes into further details about the different career paths.
Broken down by career, you will find about the route to registration, a little about what each of the careers entails, how many hours per week you can expect to work and the average salary.
Lindsay Foster, Executive Director at Signature said: “National Careers Week gives us a perfect opportunity to launch our new careers pages and to share with you all the great careers available from completing one of our qualifications.
We want more people to know about the fantastic careers that you can have by learning Sign Language, careers that are fulfilling, rewarding and really do make a difference.
If you would like to understand more about these career paths, you can reach out to someone doing that career, they will be happy to chat and tell you why they love what they do. With the BSL Bill which is currently passing through parliament, there is going to be more demand for all of these careers, there’s never been a better time to consider them.
If you want to know if BSL is for you, then give BSL for Beginners a try. It is a comprehensive online course developed alongside language experts and Deaf teachers from across the UK, it’s a great way to give the language a go to see if you enjoy it. It’s also great for upskilling as an employee and even basic sign language skills really make a difference to deaf people across the UK.”
