The First Award is the introductory level award and is designed for those just starting to use PGSS.

This is an informal assessment rather than an examination; a satisfactory performance shows that a learner is beginning to develop a good working knowledge of the Paget Gorman Signed Speech. The main criteria for success are using intelligible signing in short, simple sentences, suitable for children with specific language impairment, and being able to 'read' them back.
