The National British Sign Language Plan sets out the ambition for Scotland to be the best place in the world for BSL users to live, work and visit. The Government required each college to produce their own Local Plan to reflect the aspirations of the National Plan. The College’s BSL Plan highlights actions and aspirations that we have set out to make studying at North East Scotland College an inclusive and supportive experience.
