British Sign Language (BSL) is the first or preferred language of an estimated 70,000 Deaf people in the UK. In March 2003, BSL was recognised by the Government as a language in its own right. BSL is a visual-gestural language, with its own grammar and principles, which are completely different from the grammatical structure of English. We offer qualifications in Sign Language at Level 1 and Level 2.
The Welsh language is being increasingly heard in the media, on the street, in the workplace and amongst children. Maybe you’ve already been learning Welsh for a few years, or you have just made the decision to learn. Whatever your reasons, Coleg y Cymoedd can help you to improve or start your path to becoming a confident Welsh Speaker.
GCSEs are the main qualification taken by 14 to 16 year olds, but are available to anyone who would like to study a subject that interests them. GCSEs are highly valued by schools, colleges and employers, so will be useful whatever you are planning to do afterwards.
