BSL Taster Course

PremierBSL Courses


Workplace Support

A BSL Taster course is the most basic sign language course. It offers complete novices the chance to try out the language. Delivered in a fun but meaningful way, people have a laugh whilst learning. One young farmers’ group from West Wales recently commented that this was the best course they had ever been on!

PremierBSL offers courses that are the pinnacle of BSL tuition; they are fully accredited sign language courses awarded by the Institute of BSL and taught by expert teachers.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never signed before or you’re already proficient – PremierBSL has plenty to teach you.

Having ‘signed’ the ITV News for 10 years, Sarah is an expert translator from English to culturally appropriate BSL. If your organisation is looking to provide information/advice to your clients, customers or staff via BSL then DFBS can translate it for you.

DFBS are able to provide you with the necessary advice and support to enhance your business and service delivery. We help ensure you are providing good access for deaf clients/customers/staff, and can provide expert advice for you and your staff on any workplace issues.
