Qualification Structure

The qualification is divided into three units as follows:

  • IBSL3AUN: Understand Varied Signed Language in a range of work contexts
  • IBSL3ASN : Sign using varied language in a range of work contexts
  • IBSL3ADC : Interact with people from different countries or diverse cultures

All three units can be achieved separately, but the full Level 3 Certificate in British Sign Language Studies can only be given if there is a PASS in each unit.

This qualification has been developed in accordance with the National Language Standards at Level 3 (2010) and (for one unit) the National Occupational Standards for Intercultural Working (2008).

The best way to use and learn British Sign Language (BSL) is through conversation and discussion with one or more users of the language where straightforward and informal social interaction is the norm and our Level 3 course focuses on just that. We will provide you with a high standard qualification with the right amount of teaching and practice to build your skills. This is because we focus significantly on deeper language acquisition, and the culture and best practice use of BSL, with minimal paperwork and a very HANDS-ON approach. We also invite Deaf speakers from time to time, to enhance our students experience and knowledge through a range of different and interesting topics and discussions. It is the ideal way for you to gain this qualification.

Students will be filmed regularly and receive continual feedback and onward planning as part of this course.
