This level 2 course is for learners who wish to acquire extended British Sign Language skills for the purpose of holding more detailed communication with Deaf people including family, friends, and colleagues at work, school or college. It is also suitable for those who wish to acquire BSL skills as part of a programme of study or for professional development or for personal development with a view to future employment.
What Will I Learn?
The aim of this qualification is to further your experience and development in communication with Deaf people on everyday topics involving social life 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 languages exchanges.
Learners will develop the ability to present personal, social and work related information in BSL and to exchange routine information with Deaf people. You will also learn to understand and give advice and instructions about everyday work and social matters.
If you wish to take this course you should have successfully completed the Level 1 award in BSL, or have completed a Level 1 BSL course with 60 hours learning e.g. Signature.
There are 4 units that make up the BLS Level 2 qualification. The assessment for each unit is different; the final 2 units are assessed by an external examiner.
