British Sign Language (BSL) became a recognised language in its own right in March 2003. BSL is the first or preferred language of an estimated 87,000 Deaf people in the UK. BSL is a visual-gestural language, with its own grammar and principles, which are completely different from the grammatical structure of English.

Deafness Resource Centre offer Signature accredited qualifications in British Sign Language Level’s 1 & 2. Our BSL courses are taught by qualified, experienced, profoundly deaf native BSL users.

Funding for examinations is available for parents/carers of deaf children through Happy Hands, please contact our Family Liaison Worker Joa Lee on 01744 23887 or

We also offer accredited BSL Level 1 courses in your workplace for up to 12 people for 28 weeks. Please contact us for a quote.
