BSL LEVEL 3
Accredited course by iBSL.
This qualification aims to further Learners’ experiences and development in communication through British Sign Language (BSL) with Deaf people on everyday topics involving work and social contexts. A Level 3 course will enable development in functional BSL communication in more depth than at Level 2, requiring the ability to exchange, present and understand information, ideas, advice and opinions at normal speed, and also develop an awareness of cultural interaction with Deaf people who use BSL.
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 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.
At the end of the qualification, Learners will be able to;
Understand and present information, ideas and opinions in a range of work-related and social contexts using BSL delivered at normal speed and in normally used social and work registers;
Extract specific details and grasp overall meanings from a range of short passages in BSL delivered at normal speed and in normally used social and work registers, using varied language;
Maintain business relationships and manage/follow uncomplicated negotiations relating to issues/concerns in your area of work delivered in BSL at normal speed and in normally used social and work registers;
Take part in discussions relating to varied accounts, reports and instructions delivered in BSL at normal speed and in normally used social and work registers;
Understand the main points and relevant details of news items, interviews, documentaries and social conversation delivered in BSL at normal speed and in normally used social and work registers, provided there are common interests;
Develop interactive communication skills with Deaf people who have different cultural experiences and perspectives to your own and understand/appreciate why these differences exist;
The Level 3 Certificate in BSL Studies is suitable for those who:
Wish to acquire and utilise British Sign Language skills at normal speed over extended periods in a wide range of work and social situations, signing accurately enough to be easily understood;
Need to acquire and utilise BSL skills as part of a programme of professional development, for example, as a Communication Support Worker;
Wish to progress from the Level 3 Certificate;
The qualification is also suitable for Deaf people wishing to acquire a qualification in their own language to meet with the requirements of the Tariff of Qualifications (ITT) as an approved qualification at Level 3 for evidencing personal literacy skills in order to gain QTLS.
It is recommended that entrants should have achieved the Level 2 Certificate in BSL Studies before embarking on the Level 3 Certificate in BSL programme.
Upon completion of this qualification, Learners may progress to the following qualification:
