Want to learn how to communicate with the deaf community? We're hosting an Introduction to British Sign Language training session as part of Disability History Month!
British Sign Language (BSL) is the preferred language amongst the deaf community in the UK. It is estimated that over 150,000 people use BSL as their first language, many of whom are part of our very own UCLan community!
This training session is aimed at student volunteers who wish to upskill by learning to communicate more effectively with the deaf community. Whether you run a Club or Society and want to make your group more inclusive, or you're a Course Rep who is striving to represent everybody, this session will equip you with some useful signs to help you on your journey.
Thank you to Junhui Yang from the School of Psychology & Humanities, who has kindly volunteered to come along and run the session over in the Students' Union building.
We only have limited spaces for this training session, so if you wish to come along, please register your attendance by purchasing a FREE ticket.
