Qualification Structure

Candidates must demonstrate both receptive and productive BSL skills at level 6, and in all of the eight topics that make up this qualification. Internal and external assessments may cover any of the topics listed in this qualification.
The natural context of using BSL is in two-way interactions (discussions, conversations, debates etc.), as well as one-way interactions (monologues, presentations etc.). The candidate is therefore expected to demonstrate receptive and productive skills in both two-way and one-way interactions. Signature recommends the best approach to teaching and assessing this qualification is by covering both receptive and productive skills together.

Qualification Objectives

To develop candidates who currently demonstrate competence in BSL at level 4, or equivalent, to the deeper, more fluent Level 6 standard

Take an active role in complex situations using BSL

  • Maintain fluent and accurate BSL over extended periods within their area of expertise
  • Understand and use a complex range of vocabulary and technical language
  • Follow and formulate presentations, proposals and arguments in the support of theories and/or ideas
  • Understand and use with accuracy most colloquial and idiosyncratic BSL
  • Relay information informally to and from BSL
  • Demonstrate an understanding of BSL Linguistics theory and practice

These objectives relate to the UK Occupational Languages Standards (2010) at Level 6 as developed by CILT.
