CEO and Founder is Jacqueline Bielby, born deaf and educated in two deaf schools. Originally started out as a Flat Machinist then Kitchen Assistant going on to prep Chef working in a 5* hotel and also a cleaner in an office environment which led to me gaining a qualification in Business Studies which lead to my role as Warrant Clerk in London.
At the same time teaching young hearing children through BSL stories. I was involved in performance and community work for the Deaf Community which was thoroughly enjoyed.
Here, my love for teaching started in 1999 where I began with a Level 2 Teaching course with other deaf learners, my teacher encouraged me to pursue my teaching career. Consequently, the 'taste of teaching' turned out to be extremely beneficial.
Needless to say I finally graduated as a Qualified Teacher at Bolton University. I am very proud of my success and now put all my years of experience and teaching into practice through her business BSL Ladder.
