About Hands On
Hands On is a British Sign Language Training organisation based in Northumberland, England. Our courses are run by the only qualified British Sign Language tutor in Northumberland, Debbie Jervis.
“A long term aspiration of mine has been to establish my own business. Coupled with my late mother’s wishes this gave me the purpose and drive to bring this to fruition. Hands On aims to bridge the communication gap between hearing and D/deaf communities. Being Profoundly Deaf and BSL being my first language allows me to deliver courses with first-hand knowledge and experience together with a friendly and enthusiastic approach.
These courses aim to accomplish a better integration of the hearing and D/deaf communities by improving awareness, understanding of D/deaf culture and establishing effective communication.”
I have a small dedicated team which I work with on a regular basis. Their tasks include, but are not limited to:
All of us work closely together to ensure the business runs smoothly and all potential students are replied to and tasks are completed, promptly.
