Where to go after receiving CPD Certification from british-sign.co.uk course


Recommended Posts

This course was a godsend, having very few funds to speak of and this course offering the option to 'pay what you can' during covid meant everything. Myself and my Mum both registered for the course (my mum actually paid more than the recommended amount for both of us) but anyway, my question is where can i go from here? I notice the levels of certification and that the certificaiton of this course doesn't mention a level - so I assume i'm not any level!

I have a deaf nephew, who has cochlear implants from the age of 1 but hated his hearing henry band, and has hated the implants and attachments every since - so we know BSL to be his first language. He's at an age where he's beginning to sign for things, but learing a language is difficult and i'd like to be ready to hear, understand and communicate properly with him when he's able to.  before that point, being able to teach him signs and furthering his education is also something that i'm eager to be able to do.

As i said, money is tight, as it is with most people are the moment so i was wondering if there were any more CPD certified courses that will allow me to learn at my pace, learn remotely and complete assessments remotely with very little cost. 


Any help appreciated

Hey Turtz, I'm really sorry but I can't offer any advice myself as I'm still trying the course you've completed, Hopefully the government starts working on other ways to help out d/Deaf people in a society like ours. I find exclusion in groups to be a big problem personally. I hope everything goes ok for you and family, hopes are with you ❤️

    • I'm learning sign language to help support a non-verbal and deaf autistic person
    • Hi! I am learning BSL alongside a group of hearing friends and our deaf friend who will in some years will need BSL to communicate. But I am also a theatre maker and want to be able to collaborate with Deaf artists and audiences. I am also autistic and find verbal communication difficult sometimes so I'm hoping BSL can help me communicate.

    • Hi Jenny, that is something they have mentioned but to be honest I've not yet really had any information about them just had a bout of perichondritis it just seems to be one thing after another I have another ENT appointment 28th December I'll ask for some information, thankyou 😊 
    • I've decided to learn BSL because I've experienced sudden onset severe hearing loss in both ears. The ENT has told me there isn't anything they can do to help. I'm in the early stages of getting bone-anchored hearing aids; this process will take about a year. I want to have as many communication tools in my arsenal as possible, especially as my hearing is likely to continue to worsen.   Jenny
    • Hi Dawn, I also suffered from chronic infections with in-ear hearing aids. Have you and your GP/ENT/Audiologist ever discussed bone-anchored hearing aids?  I'm trialling them now and so far it's an absolute game-changer for me. They sit behind the ear and use bone conduction to stimulate the auditory nerve; nothing has to go inside your ear with those.   Jenny
    • So here's a quick introduction to myself. My name is Jenny. I'm a teacher and therapist for children with learning or emotional support needs. I'm learning BSL because I have just recently experienced sudden and severe mixed hearing loss in both ears.  I'm hoping I'll be approved for implantation of bone-anchored hearing aids soon, but that process will take at least a year so in the meantime... here I am!
