Hey guys,

I am Sarah, I am a newly qualified teacher and committed to my continuing professional development! I have worked with SEND children for many years prior to training as a teacher and know a few bits of BSL like toilet, help and so on but would like to follow in my Mothers foot steps and learn BSL so I am able to have conversations, give clearer instructions while in SEND schools (supply teacher at the moment so in and out of many schools). While we have the time... and now I am off work I certainly do, I thought I should begin to learn and I am loving this course! You can go at your own pace, revisit and revise! Love that you get print out's too... will be being used when I have my own classroom (fingers crossed very very soon)!

Love that this course is so easy to use! And you don't have to be stuck in a classroom to learn - tomorrow I will be sat on my balcony learning while eating breakfast... watching no one walk past because we are all locked inside!!

Hope to hear from some of you soon!! Any advice is welcomed - also if anyone knows of any other CPD courses that they have loved send them my way! I am using my time off wisely!

    • My name is LJ, and I decided to learn BSL to open up career opportunities and whilst i know a few basic signs, learning it fully has always been a goal of mine
    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more.
