What You Get

  • Level 1 Certificate in BSL
  • Course Description

    This qualification is designed to enable learners to communicate with Deaf people in British Sign Language (BSL) on a range of topics that involve simple, everyday language use. This qualification is consistent with the National Language Standards at Level 1.

    Entry Requirement

    No prior qualification is needed.

    Learners can attend an informal assessment prior to the course to determine if they are ready to enter the BSL Level 1 course. This will give the learner an opportunity to have an informal chat with the teacher and to ask any questions.

    Course Content

    This qualification is divided into three units, each of which can be achieved separately. Learners new to BSL should cover the introductory unit first, as units 102 and 103 build further on this knowledge.

    Unit 101 – Introduction to BSL

    To achieve this unit, learners will partake in a simple conversation involving meeting people, using numbers, discussing weather, transport and directions.

    Unit 102 – Conversational BSL

    To achieve this unit, learners must be able to do a short conversation linking with people, animals, objects, using numbers, interests and activities, and weather. Wider vocabularies are used for this unit and learners must be able to show that they can understand and exchange information in a straightforward way.

    Unit 103 – BSL at School, College or Work

    To achieve this unit, learners will partake in a short conversation involving a chosen place (school, college or work) and to exchange information on how to get around, about people, buildings, refreshments and using extended numbers.

    Assessment Progression

    Learners will have three assessments to complete three units.  However, assessments are not compulsory.

    • Unit 101, learners will have a straightforward conversation with a BSL user for few minutes. This is internally marked.
    • Unit 102, learners will have a straightforward conversation with a BSL user. This will be a little longer than Unit 101. It is externally marked.
    • Unit 103, the same applies as Unit 102.

    When the learner has achieved the full level 1 Award in BSL, he/she will be able to progress onto the Level 2 Certificate in British Sign Language, also offered by BSL College. Over 90% of BSL College learners continue with Level 2 Certificate in BSL.

    Students will receive BSL’s full personal support, encouragement and advice to help them complete each stage of the course to the required standard

    This qualification is designed to enable learners to develop the ability to communicate with Deaf people using British Sign Language (BSL) in a range of familiar contexts, participating in longer and more open-ended exchanges than at Level 1.

    This course will develop functional communication in BSL on a range of real life, routine and daily experiences. The learner will also be able to deal with most routine language tasks and have sufficient grasp of grammar to cope with some non-routine tasks.

    This qualification is consistent with the National Language Standards at Level 2.

    Entry Requirement

    Signature Level 1 Certificate in BSL or equivalent.

    Students will attend an informal assessment prior to the course to determine if they are ready to enter the BSL Level 2 course. They will be required to have a short, informal conversation in BSL with the teacher. Returning BSL College Level 1 students will not need to do this. If you feel you would like an informal chat with one of the tutors before the assessment day to establish your current signing skills, please feel free to email or phone.

    Course Content

    This qualification is divided into 3 units, each of which can be achieved separately.  Assessments are not compulsory.
    They are as follows:-

    Unit 202 – BSL Productive Skills

    To achieve this unit, learners must show that they can use routine language in everyday situations, including giving brief descriptions of personal, social and work circumstances, and giving a short presentation.

    Unit 203 – BSL Conversational Skills

    To achieve this unit, learners must show that they can use both skills, production and receptive, to demonstrate that they can understand and exchange information during a routine conversation with a BSL user.

    This qualification has four themes.

    • Theme 1 – Everyday Conversation which is MANDATORY
    • Theme 2 – Eating and Drinking which is OPTIONAL
    • Theme 3 – Spending and Shopping which is OPTIONAL
    • Theme 4 – Travel and Holidays which is OPTIONAL

    Course Description

    Part 1 of the Signature Level 6 NVQ Certificate in BSL caters for the learning needs of those who already have competence in BSL at level 3. This qualification is useful for those who work professionally with Deaf people or those who aspire to work in the Deaf community. Part 1 covers the teaching on the linguistic issues and it prepares learners for the assessment component of the programme. Part 2 covers building quality portfolios for submissions.

    We will instruct learners how to improve their language skills so they match the required standard of the Level 6 component and prepare them for successful portfolio building explored in Part 2.

    The aim of the course is to enable learners to understand complex BSL in the context of a range of work and social situations. Learners will undertake a wide variety of work such as negotiations, discussions and the relaying of instructions. Learners will also be taught how to understand and interpret news items, interviews and documentaries. This work will increase their complex vocabulary by exploring the many different ways of explaining and describing a subject. This will, in turn, prepare BSL graduates for a wide variety of professional and social situations.

    Entry Requirement

    Signature Level 3 NVQ Certificate in BSL or equivalent.
    Assessment required.

    Learners will attend an informal assessment to determine if they are ready to enter the BSL Level 6 component of their studies. They will be required to do a short informal presentation, watch a signed clip and have a conversation in BSL. If you feel you would like an informal chat with one of the tutors before the assessment day to establish your current signing skills, please feel free to email or phone.

    Course Content

    The course consists of 2 units BSL601 and BSL602. You must complete both units to pass the NVQ Certificate.

    BSL601 covers the receptive unit and BSL602 covers the productive unit. We will teach learners and assess their knowledge on a variety of disciplines:

    • To be able to understand and maintain complex social interactions
    • To be able to understand and use signed communication in a wide range of complex word situations
    • To be able to understand and use a complex range of vocabulary and technical language
    • To be able to understand and use a full range of grammatical forms
    • To be able to use reference sources

    Assessment Progression

    An assessment will take place at the end of the course to determine if you are ready to continue on to Part 2 NVQ portfolio building and achieve the full Level 6 NVQ Certificate in BSL, however all learners will receive a Certificate of Attendance on completion.

    Duration

    The next Level 6 Part 1 course will start in January 2018, an assessment is needed so please contact Davina at davina@bslcollege.co.uk to arrange this. Contact the college for the new dates.

  • Level 6 NVQ Certificate in British Sign Language (Part 2)
  • Assessors

    Yvonne Cobb and Sarah Smith

    Internal Verifier

    Fiona Nicholson

    Course Description

    Part 2 of the Signature Level 6 NVQ Certificate is the last part of the course where you will collect a portfolio of evidence of your BSL skills with the help and support of BSL College Assessors to gain a full Level 6 qualification.

    During the three months, BSL College and the learners will work closely together to build up a strong signing portfolio. Careful planning for the filming will take place, and regular, yet firm, feedback will be given and received. Filming for the portfolio will take place both internally and externally. A total of 90 minutes is needed for both of the learner’s receptive and productive skills to be composed into the portfolio. For example, some of the criteria includes having learners express complex sign language in an advice way, to give an informal presentation, and to partake in a lively debate.

    Full concise information will be explained and shared on the first day of the portfolio course.

    The course consists of 2 units BSL 601 and BSL 602.  You must complete both units to pass the NVQ Certificate.

    BSL601 covers the receptive unit and BSL602 covers the productive unit. We will teach students and assess their knowledge on a variety of disciplines.

    For Unit 601, it refers to work situations but the aim of this unit is to enable the candidate to understand complex BSL in the context of a range of work and social. You would learn how to be able to extract complex information from a wide range of sources, even when it is delivered at speed. You would learn to be comfortable with a range of regional variations, formal and informal language, relevant technical vocabulary and colloquialisms. You will also learn how to take part in negotiations, and deal with complaints, problems or disputes. You will also be able to make effective use of the telephone/videophone or other web-based live communications.

    For Unit 602, the aim of this unit is to enable the candidate to use complex BSL in the context of a range of work and social.

    You would learn how to communicate fluently over extended periods with only occasional inaccuracy – which you can usually correct. You would learn how to discuss all topics within your field, even when abstract or complex, and keep the conversation going smoothly. You would also use your language skills to develop relationships with individuals and groups, and also, if required, negotiate in meetings to reach decisions or solve problems.  You would use the telephone, videophone and other web-based technology confidently and effectively.

    It is expected that while studying for this unit candidates will demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the required elements of BSL Sign Linguistics in a range of practice settings, by communicating with others in BSL, to show their ability to convey a message appropriately.

    Entry Requirement

    Signature Level 6 in BSL (Part 1) or equivalent.

    Students will attend an informal assessment to determine if they are ready to enter the Part 2 of Level 3 BSL Portfolio Building. Discussions will be held to determine your suitability for this course. As this is an assessment only programme, your skills should be at the appropriate level before joining. The Part 1 of BSL NVQ Level 3 is designed to prepare you for the assessment part in Part 2.

    If you feel you would like an informal chat with one of the tutors before the assessment day to establish your current signing skills, please feel free to email or phone.

    Assessment Progression

    Learners need to either have completed Part 1 of the Level 6 NVQ Certificate course or they may have already got experience of signing, which can easily be transferred to the portfolio building. Assessments must take place prior to the Portfolio Building course so that BSL College Assessors can decide the suitability and readiness of the students.

    When learners are allocated a place, they will then have the opportunity to build a portfolio (NVQ portfolio building) and achieve the full Level 6 NVQ Certificate in BSL.

    Cost

    £1250.00 plus £188.00 Signature fee, totalling £1438.00. No 10% reduction for returning students.
