BSL Action Plan

Welcome to our information page for users of British Sign Language. Our BSL Action Plan has been developed to support the BSL National Plan for Scotland, which was published on 24 October 2017. The BSL National Plan has ten long-term goals. These goals represent the collective ambition for BSL in Scotland and underpin the Scottish Government’s overall ambition: to make Scotland the best place in the world for BSL users to live, work and visit. This draft document, which will be subject to change, outlines Borders College’s plans to achieve the aims of the British Sign Language (Scotland) Act 2015 and outlines the measures it will take to promote awareness and use of BSL, and to improve access to its education and teaching services for deaf and deaf-blind persons.
