Course Details

  • This course is aimed at people who want to be able to use sign language for personal reasons or in order to expand their career potential.

    This qualification aims to further learners’ experiences and development in communication through British Sign Language (BSL) with Deaf people on everyday topics involving social life and at work, school or college. A Level 2 course will enable development in functional BSL communication in more depth than at Level 1, requiring a wider grasp of grammar to cope with some non-routine language exchanges.

    The qualification is divided into four units:

    1. Receptive skills in British Sign Language

    2. Developing BSL Presentation Skills

    3. Understand and take part in routine conversations in BSL

    4. Understand and use routine BSL in everyday context

  • It is recommended that entrants should have the Level 1 Award in BSL or equivalent before embarking on the Level 2 certificate programme.

  • This course is assessed practically.

  • Learners can develop in communication with deaf people in community, work, education and family.

    They can become a Sign Language Interpreter, working with deaf people/community. It may enhance their current employment working with people who have communication needs.
