A unique degree course teaching Performance in BSL and English has been launched by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

The BA course, which is the only one of its kind in the UK, is being run in association with Solar Bear Theatre Company, and has Deaf theatre director Jenny Sealey as its programme patron.

The aim of the course is to train more talented performers from within the Deaf community, and the course will be taught in British Sign Language (with fully qualified BSL interpreters) and spoken English.

Students will develop skills in acting, movement, dance, signing on stage, improvisation and puppetry as well as exploring highly visual and physical performance styles.

The course promise to teach students "the skills they need to prepare you for a career in film, television, theatre and more."
