British Sign Language (BSL)

BSL Level 1 course:

Level 1 award in British sign Language can be taken without any previous BSL experience. BSL topics include names, numbers, greeting, friends, family, transport, food, the weather and around the home. This qualification allows learners to gain basic skills and confidence in the two areas of production and reception directions, days, times, at work and much more.

• 101 Introduction to BSL

• 102 Conversational BSL

• 103 Communicate about everyday life

BSL Level 2 course:

This qualification is designed to enable learners to develop their skills to communicate with Deaf people using British Sign Language in a range of everyday situations. It will allow learners to participate in longer and more varied conversations than at Level 1. The course will develop BSL communication about real life, routines and daily experiences so that the student will have enough understanding of grammar to be able to deal with most routine and non-routine communication. Learners will be taught a number of regional variations in sign language.

• 201 Receptive skills
