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 ❤️

    • Hi  I’m currently working in a primary school in Wales. There has been suggestions that I might be working with a 6 year old with a cochlear implant from September. Im here to improve my BSL to help them achieve the best they can 
    • That's great!  I'm taking level 2 ISL(Irish) right now.  Got a book of Bible Stories in English and Braille I'm working through too. I wish you the best of luck!
    • Hey, i'm new here. I'm coming to the end of my level 1 course now ready to start level 2. I am aiming to go all the way to persue my drea career as an interpretor. I am hoping to find some people here that would like to practice, so that our signing can get to be the est it can be!
    • It's a bit late to reply, though I think Let's Sign BSL Dictionary is one of the more impressive sign dictionaries.  ASL has "The Gallaudet Children’s Dictionary of American Sign Language" and the ISL(Irish) dictionary includes the first page with the alphabet, the explains each further sign with the alphabet introduced on the first page.  A good dictionary can be a good book I think. I only just noticed no one had answered your question, so I thought I might.
    • Hi all, hoping that you are really well. I undertook a BSL course around 25 years ago. I now have a little boy who requires us to sign to help him with his day to day life. It's surprising how much is coming back to me and how much I enjoy it!. Hoping that today is a good day for you :) 
    • It's great that you're going BSL, I'm sure you'll find friends with it. I haven't had any real conversations in sign language, I only picked ISL because it looked fun.  I do hope to finish the last class in the next month.  Thank you for the encouragement. I actually find Braille more testable since those I know aren't too interested in sign.  Braille is quite fun now with the different English and universal ones to learn, grade 1, 2, 3, UEB, math, and music.  It's nice to read dual te
