Since its establishment as a company SigniaSigning has been responsible for teaching British Sign Language (BSL) and Deaf awareness to both individuals, public and private corporations. We specialise in teaching BSL levels 1, 2 & 6 to people who are keen to acquire signing skills in a supportive and enjoyable atmosphere.

Our staff include Deaf and hard of hearing tutors who bring with them invaluable insights into Deaf culture and communicating with members of the Deaf and hard of hearing community. Our tutors have years of experience in translating their knowledge and superb sign language skills to hearing and deaf individuals alike.

We offer a wide variety of courses catering for people wanting to learn at all levels and we are a registered examination centre for the popular signature BSL levels 1-2. In addition we offer corporate courses and have extensive experience visiting a wide variety of organisations to teach basic sign language and Deaf awareness.

Over the last few years we have enjoyed teaching many hundreds of people sign language and bringing sign language and deaf awareness into numerous diverse private and public companies.
