The Enhancement Workshop concentrates on improving and developing signing and symbol skills.  You will learn translation skills using signs and symbols.

The Enhancement Workshop is made up of 6 modules which can be delivered in a number of different ways, for example:

  • over 3 days
  • 6 x 3 hour sessions delivered over a number of weeks.
