This is an exciting new course which will enable you to communicate in British Sign Language at Level 3 standard whether it’s with friends and family, preparing you to work with Deaf people or if you want to become proficient in a new skill within a range of situations.
The course is divided into three units and candidates are required to pass all units to gain the qualification.
At the end of the course you will receive the Level 3 Certificate in BSL accredited by Signature, the national awarding body. Please note this course is not an NVQ. The programme covers issues within the key social paradigms including Home Life, Social/Recreational Activities, Education and Training, Employment, Consumer Issues & Daily Living and Deaf History & Culture. The course is delivered through various means such as:
• Filmed and assessed tasks
• Receptive skill tests/Deaf guests presentations
• Discussion forums
• Native BSL tutors
• Interactive group work/activities
BSL Level 320 – This unit aims for Learners to develop an understanding and competent use of the grammatical rules of BSL. Learners will complete this unit on linguistics and be assessed on their linguistics and grammatical knowledge, prior to the assessment of units BSL321 and BSL322.
BSL Level 321– The aim of the unit is to enable learners to understand varied BSL in a range of work and social situations. Learners should develop the ability to follow and take part in conversations and discussions delivered at normal speed on a range of topics in different work and social situations.
BSL Level 322 – By the end of this unit the learner can contribute BSL in a range of work-related and social situations (including one to ones, group discussions and presentations) and have a good vocabulary which they can adapt to get straightforward messages across and find alternative ways to articulate what they are saying.
Assessments take place during normal class time and the assessment fees are included in the course price
Candidates must possess Signature / CACDP BSL Level 2 and at least one year’s experience integrating within a Deaf environment and attending Deaf events.

Thank you Lorraine and Cloe for your wonderful, warm presentation. I feel like I have had a brilliant introduction to BSL.

"I wanted to say how professional you and the team have been throughout my application to undertake the iBSL course. Without your support it would have been so easy for me to have given up. A huge thank you. I have since recommended you to my fellow trainee interpreters and hope they apply for future courses. I know I will!"
L. Weatherson, IBSL Interpreting student 2017
Afternoon all, I finally got some feedback from Grey Coat School about the Languages at Work event that you all supported. I have attached the feedback for you to have a read through as it is very positive - again thanks for all your support! Best, Hannah
