Once again we are pleased to announce that from 1st January 2019 until 31st December 2019 all BSGA Full and Affiliate Members will receive financial support towards the cost of attending workshops and training provided by BSGA Members Make it Happen. This will apply to any of the education workshops or Dress Down Hands On programme offered by Make it Happen. These are CPD accredited and are considered beneficial for employees’ career progression and advancement.

In one day, attendees can learn about more techniques and materials than any sign company will deal with in over a month’s work. The benefits are a more educated and enthused work force able to spot more and more lucrative opportunities. These courses are aimed at those who are new into the industry as well as working with those who have had more experience. The courses provide help and guidance so that those missed opportunities become less and less.

Why are we doing this? Here are a couple of testimonials that go a long way in explaining why we feel Members of the BSGA should seriously consider these courses for themselves and their employees.

“I attended Sam’s Education program after having sent two of my team on it previously. Even though I’ve been in the industry a few years there’s always things to learn and new processes or ways of thinking to hear about. I’d recommend the program to anyone in our industry, either to gain further insights if you’re new to the trade or refresh the knowledge you already have.”  David Allen, Director of Allen Signs

” It really was an excellent day with so much packed in to a short time frame. Thank you very much.” John Dooley, Account Director @ Service Graphics


Attendees have ranged from first time sales to experienced project managers, designers and production staff. Experience has ranged from as little as 2 days to 43 years in the industry – all in the same room at the same time and all having gone away with tremendous feedback and support for the training.

Regardless of your level of experience, it is MiH and our mission to refresh your signage knowledge and renew your inspiration for the industry.

Details of how BSGA funding works will be sent to members renewing their membership, details will be sent in their Renewal Pack.

Or simply contact sam@makeih.co.uk or ladies@makeih.co.uk for details, forthcoming dates and availability.

If you have any other questions, please contact either Sam or Katie or Zoe at Make it Happen who will be pleased to help.
