Happy Sign Language Week 2021! It has been 18 years since the
government officially recognised BSL! It is wonderful to see that opportunities for learning British Sign Language have not been limited despite the restrictions we have had in place during Covid-19.

Zoom has enabled new BSL students from across the country to enrol on courses with Hands On in 2020/21 - it has been great to see so many new faces and I look forward to welcoming more!

Hello everyone, I hope you all are keeping safe & well?

We are looking to start running a remote refresher course in the near future which will be held on the last Friday of every month (possibly fortnightly) via Zoom.

The course will be primarily aimed at BSL Level 2 students & above who have been unable to practice their existing skills within the BSL community due to the impact of the ongoing pandemic.

I have included the flyer for this course in the post so please get in touch with me either by commenting on this post/private message or email if you are interested in participating.

Please also get in touch if you would like any further details on this course.

It would be great if we could all get together to keep up the practice until we are able to resume our social events.
