BSL for the Workplace

Course duration:    5-10 weeks
Class duration:     2 hours per week

You may encounter Deaf BSL users in your workplace, or, indeed come face to face with customers who use BSL to communicate.  If so, do you require basic BSL training tailor-made to your type of business or service?

We offer short courses designed to provide you and your staff with basic BSL skills and Deaf awareness. This is a great opportunity to empower your staff to upskill themselves, and to promote your business as inclusive both to Deaf staff members and potential Deaf customers.

Some of the content covered is the same as the Introduction to BSL course in that everyday vocabulary vital for communication will be covered such as:


  • Basic Deaf awareness
  • Greeting and meeting people
  • Time and Date
  • Numbers and quantity
  • BSL Alphabet


In addition, we provide bespoke training, more focussed on sector-specific vocabulary such as:


  • Shops and Retail
  • Customer Services
  • Hospitality
  • Health/NHS
  • Police/Law
  • Education
  • Social Care
  • Citizen’s Advice and so on…









Learning Outcomes and Aims:


Upon successful completion of this course, learners will receive a certificate of completion. In addition, learners will be able to:


  • demonstrate their ability to recognise BSL signs and sign straightforward information relating to their workplace business/service.
  • be able to hold a basic conversation in BSL, both with Deaf colleagues and customers.


Next Steps

Upon completing the BSL for workplace course, learners can proceed to the Level 1 Award in British Sign Language.
