Our training services are divided into four main areas;
appa offers high-quality training in British Sign Language Levels 1, 2, 3 and 6, within a friendly and supportive learning environment. All courses and programmes are delivered in British Sign Language by experienced trainers, teachers, assessors and internal quality assurers. Our courses are rigorously designed around the Signature assessment criteria and we will support you the whole way through your learning journey.
appa training is recognised nationally as a leading centre of excellence in training for interpreting and translation. Rigorously designed around the Signature and iBSL qualifications, our courses are delivered in two parts: Part 1 skills and knowledge development, and Part 2 portfolio assessment.
appa training also offers the iBSL Deafblind qualifications, provided by an experienced Deafblind Teacher/Assessor.

You will be assessed prior to being accepted into our programmes and will receive feedback about your development.

All our courses are delivered in British Sign Language and aimed at those who work with BSL, interpreting and translation NVQ qualifications, as well as other subjects taught in BSL.
