Fancied it for a while but lack of courses put me off blush post not a lot of use at all really

That made me laugh! Yeah am looking for courses and seems that way. Just wondered the potential for training and then employment as freelancer as thought it could be something i could do with kids but not sure...

I think it can depend where you live. In London I think it is hard to get work interpreting. I ran a very successful baby signing franchise for 8.5yrs while my kids were little and it was great for me and I loved it. Take a look at TinyTalk.

Ah, i thought that interpreting or work signing was a sought after job? Am I wrong then? Just want to train in something that may differentiate me so the prospects of getting a job is high and maybe freelancing with it. Based in Yorkshire.

greener2, if you want to learn BSL in the Yorkshire area, I recommend Absolute BSL, based in Leeds:
Like a lot of BSL teachers nowadays, Absolute BSL uses Signworld,a new website with BSL learning materials, including a free Lesson One. It currently has BSL Levels 1, 2 and 3; Fingerspelling; Numbers and Colours; and a Medical Specialism. You can find it, including the free lesson, here: A lot of BSL teachers are now building Signworld into their courses because it means they can set tasks and monitor learners' progress between classes.
