If you are unemployed and have a PaCE or CfW advisor, you may be able to get funding for our Level 1 BSL classes. Speak to your advisor who can book you on.
This course is aimed at beginners. No prior experience of sign language is required. We will teach the Signature Level One Curriculum, giving students the opportunity to achieve (via 3 assessments) the Level One Certificate in BSL, a nationally recognised qualification.
The course length is 30 weeks and consists of one 2 hour session per week (60 hours in total). It is not advisable to start the course late.
This course is also available for residential / intensive.
The assessments involve a 4 to 5 minute conversation using BSL with the course trainer and take place when the Unit has been fully studied. The first assessment is marked by your tutor and the remaining two will be videoed and sent to a Signature Assessor for marking / validation. They are based on :
Unit 101 ~ Introduction to BSL
Unit 102 ~ Conversational BSL
Unit 103 ~ Communicate in BSL about everyday life
Minimum numbers apply and CLW reserves the right to cancel courses at any time.
