We are so incredibly proud of our Signalong Champions! On Monday, we celebrated their fantastic achievement in gaining a qualification in Signalong! Proud families joined us to watch our signing stars receive their certificates and watch them graduate from the Signalong for Learners Course. Well done from everyone at Delamere- what an achievement!
At Delamere, we offer the opportunity for children to gain a recognised qualification in Signalong.
Our Signalong Champions are all working towards gaining the ‘Signalong for Learners’ accreditation which allows them to demonstrate their ability to recognise and perform signs, as well as giving opportunities to build their own confidence and educate others.
Our Signalong Champions often create educational videos teaching useful sign vocabulary and they evidence their work towards their qualifications in their very own Ebooks.
Have a look at their fantastic work by clicking on the links below!
Signalong externally accredits ‘Signalong for Learner’s’ courses which are mapped to the Speech Language and Communication Needs Framework (SLCF). The Framework sets out the key skills and knowledge needed to support speech language and communication development. It ensures that the content:
• Is “fit for the purpose”
• Includes relevant content
• Uses appropriate methods of assessment
We are proud to have been awarded Silver Level Signalong Friendly Status. This means that we have been recognised as upholding the values of Signalong which include “greater fulfilment of potential, greater independence, reduction in disturbed and challenging behaviour, improvement in self-esteem and improved relationships”
Our Signalong Champions took part in the first of many Signalong Charity‘s free live training sessions. Our Signalong champions really enjoyed learning lots of new signs relating to British Values. We even got invited to join Maxine on the live to show the viewers how we performed the new signs! We’re looking forward to joining the other sessions!
