    About Sign Right

    British Sign Language is a visual form of communication using hands, facial expression and body language, mainly used by people who are Deaf. British Sign Language is a fully recognised language and is independent of spoken English.

    Why learn another language?

    A second language improves executive function in the brain – which includes decision making, keeping a clear focus in the midst of distractions, and maintaining self control. Also delays dementia and Alzheimer’s by up to five years!

    About Alan

    I am a self employed British Sign Language and Deaf Awareness Trainer and communicate using British Sign Language.

    Sign Right was established as my own business in August 2010 after I was made redundant from the local college where I had taught for over 15 years.

    Sign Right BSL courses at Levels 1, 2 and 3 along with NVQ Level 6. There is a mixture of deaf and hearing students at various training centres/Deaf centres across the North West.

    Communicating with BSL affects every aspect of everyday life. However, in my professional career as a BSL tutor, I use a Communication Support Worker for most aspects of my job, even helping in the preparation of this profile.

    I am fully qualified as a trainer by Signature, the governing body for BSL teachers. In addition, I am required to attend ongoing training courses for professional development and standards assessment.

    Sign Right leave no stone unturned to educate you in BSL.

    They are knowlegable, thorough, and patient and have gone beyond what I expected from them during this training.
