Sign for Thoughts is delighted to be running the iBSL Level 2 Award in Deafblind Communication Course. The courses will commence in January 2022. We are running 3 courses, each course is 4 full days teaching and 1 assessment day.
With around 330,475 Deafblind people in the UK, we need to spread awareness and improve communication and access for all.
This qualification aims to further learners' experiences and development in communication awareness through British Sign Language (BSL) with Deafblind people in everyday life socially or at work, in school or college. A Level 2 course will enable development in functional Deafblind communication in more depth than at Level 1.
The Level 2 Award in Deafblind Communication is suitable for those who:
- Wish to acquire Deafblind Communication skills at an intermediate level for the purpose of holding more detailed communication with Deafblind people;
- Need to acquire Deafblind Communication skills as part of a programme of study or professional development;
- Are studying for personal development with a view to future employment;
- Wish to progress from the Level 1 Deafblind Awareness Award.
Our Deafblind courses are fully accredited by the Institute of British Sign Language (iBSL), as recognised by Ofqual (the Office of the Regulator for Qualifications, Examinations and Assessments in England).
