British Sign Language Level 1 Course for Teenagers: Part 1

JDA is running a unique course for teenagers in the summer holidays and the end of year holidays.
This is BSL Level 1 … and more!
The interactive course will equip young people with:

- the ability to communicate in BSL to Level 1 and knowledge of Deaf culture
- an understanding of what living with deafness means
- experience of sound and lipreading from a deaf person’s perspective
- the skills to communicate and interact effectively with deaf people
- strategies for protecting our hearing
- deaf-friendly activities for working with deaf children
- the tools to spread good practice and awareness among other young people.

The course will take place between 22 July- 2 August 2019, 10a.m.- 5p.m.

It will include accredited BSL Level 1 exams – helping towards Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
We will also encourage students to put their training to good use afterwards by babysitting for deaf children, helping with homework and going out to children’s and youth groups to raise deaf awareness.

The entire course fee is £200 and includes exam fees.

Places are limited to 16 and can be booked via

This subsidised course was made possible by the incredible 14-year-old Lorna Goldman, who was inspired to learn sign language having made friends with a deaf girl at a weekend camp.  
She raised the funding through Bat Mitzvah donations and the generous support of The Duveen Trust. Lorna also made this video to promote the course:
