Course Description

With statistics for the number of deaf adults and children in the UK rising every year, it is becoming more apparent for us to grasp at least the basics of British sign language, especially if it means being able to communicate with our loved ones or if our chosen career paths call for the use of sign. Hearing and speech disabilities among the UK population have without a doubt paved the way for diversification, so whether you're already a member of the sign community or are seeking to begin learning the language from scratch, there's never been a better time to take up such an in-demand, specialist form of communication.

Made up of hand gestures, movements, body language and various facial expressions, it takes time and practice to be able to master British sign language and more importantly, learn how to communicate effectively with a person who is either completely deaf or has any degree of hearing impairment.

The Sign Language Diploma course is ideal for students who require this particular method of communication for personal or business use. It might be that one of your relatives or close friends suffers from deafness or hearing impairment and your goal is to engage with them. Alternatively, this learning structure is highly informative to those who need a strong foundation of British sign language knowledge for employment purposes. There are many jobs across both the public and private sector that require a detailed understanding of sign language, from interpreting and teaching to social support work and care.
