Signing first: evaluation of the I-Sign project

Details

I-Sign is a collaboration of 5 partners and 2 regional hubs, coming together to respond to the (then) DCSF invitation to tender with the aim of establishing family sign language training, CPD (Continuing Professional Development), a framework of training leading to recognised qualifications for BSL teachers and interpreters and a map of qualification pathways.

The I-Sign evaluation looked to involve interested parties wherever possible. Formative feedback was given through face to face meetings with consortium members at steering committee meetings and through interim and progress reports.

The evaluation also assessed the reach and effectiveness of the pilot, considering the extent to which it is achieving its stated aims and objectives and exploring the benefits for project participants.
