SignWise Tuition is a specialist Sign Language provider based in Norwich. SignWise offers British Sign Language Level 1, 2 and 3 Courses, Sign and Study Groups and Social Events for Signers of all levels.
Jo Sandy, who has been teaching BSL since 2012, set up SignWise Tuition after a previous provider of BSL courses she worked for, stopped offering Certified Courses.
Growing up with high tone deafness, later leading to loss of her residual hearing, meant she was trying to find ways to cope. She found a BSL class and it was the first time she felt able to communicate with a group of people without a feeling of inferiority or constant anxiety of not being able to hear properly. It seemed a natural progression to go from learning to teaching, so after Level 2, she took a teaching qualification.
‘I’ve never aspired to have my own business’
With the encouragement from her students, SignWise Tuition was created to offer them a chance to continue to study and gain a qualification, as well as Bringing Sign to Life through fun, social signing events.
‘I love the language and I love teaching it.’
SignWise Tuition holds three simple aims
1. To support people who wish to learn British Sign Language
2. To help people gain Signature British Sign Language accreditation
3. To offer informal opportunities and events that gives people the opportunities meet other people to practise British Sign Language
