British Sign Language Level 6 NVQ Certificate

Are you ready to take your British Sign Language to another level?  Perhaps you are progressing on your route to becoming an Interpreter?  Maybe you work professionally with deaf clients as a Social Worker, Teacher or Lecturer, and need to improve your ability to communicate across a range of situations? Or are you a native BSL user, looking to embark on a career in Translation?

Whatever your motivation, Remark! Training offers Level 6 BSL in a variety of formats.

There are two phases to this qualification. Our Language Development training teaches you more about BSL theory and you have the opportunity to practice and develop your skills ahead of the NVQ Certificate, which is the assessment phase.

Our courses are designed around the Signature Qualification Specification and we receive positive and consistent feedback from our Signature External Verifier on the structure of our portfolios and our assessment process.

Our pass rates are something to boast about – we have a 100% success rate in BSL NVQs over the last decade!

Units

Language Development

The Language Development programme is an 8 day session/13 evening session course which focuses on improving your receptive and productive skills to help you reach the standard needed to collect evidence for your portfolio.

You will be taught to use complex BSL in a range of work and social situations, looking in more detail at areas of BSL grammar, structure and linguistics including the use of different verbs; mouth patterns and NMFs; timelines, aspect and manner; phonology; colloquialism; role-shift; negation and affirmation.

In addition you will work on your receptive and translation skills to brush up your performance ahead of assessment.

You will have the opportunity to practice implementing your newly acquired knowledge through a range of classroom exercises and homework including:

  • Producing filmed and assessed tasks
  • Group discussions and debates
  • Delivering presentations in BSL
  • Translation skills practice
  • DVD receptive skills practice

Level 6 NVQ Certificate in BSL – How to Build your Portfolio

The second phase of Remark!’s Level 6 includes a two-day course on ‘How to Build your Portfolio’. Your Teacher will inform you about the procedures required for the NVQ Certificate, the evidence you need to collect and how to complete the paperwork required for the portfolio submission. You will work on your own, in groups and with your tutor to plan and create different types of evidence for your portfolio. You will also start collecting your evidence in a supportive environment.

Following the portfolio building course, you will arrange four two-hour tutorials with your allocated Assessor. These are designed to analyse and give feedback on your evidence clips, provide you with support and guidance and help you prepare your portfolio for final submission.

Once your Assessor is happy that your portfolio meets the Signature assessment criteria, it will be submitted to our Internal Verifier who checks the Assessor’s decision. The External Verifier from Signature will then sample candidates’ portfolios to ensure they meet the UK Occupational Language Standards (CILT, 2010) before successful candidates are awarded the Signature Level 6 NVQ Certificate in BSL.

Assessments

There is no formal assessment during this phase but you will be encouraged to self-evaluate your signing and you will receive feedback from your tutor. You will benefit from having regular access to the Deaf community to support your learning.You will receive a Certificate of Attendance upon completion of the course.

Following the Level 6 Language Development programme, you will be required to attend a pre-course assessment before continuing onto the Level 6 NVQ Certificate in BSL.

Entry Requirements

Candidates must possess Signature/CACDP Level 3 in BSL and at least one year’s experience integrating within a Deaf environment and attending Deaf events.

Students will be assessed to determine their ability to meet the required specifications for this course through a pre-course assessment. This costs £25 and includes constructive feedback to help you progress and develop as a BSL user.
