British Sign Language Level 1 - Group 2

Undertake a full learning programme and examination to gain a Level 1 Certificate in BSL. Designed to teach learners to communicate with Deaf people in British Sign Language (BSL) on a range of topics.

Read this first

  • Please note that we will be prioritising students who have completed the 6-week BSL taster course.
  • Due to the high cost of this activity, please only apply if you are able to fully engage in the programme (missing the odd session is fine, but you need to be able to engage with most of it)
  • There are two groups available, you are welcome to apply for both if you are able to be flexible with your engagement - but please only accept one offer if you are successful!
  • We will aspire to run this session in-person as planned, but this may change subject to coronavirus guidelines.

Qualification Aim

This qualification is designed to teach learners to communicate with Deaf people in British Sign Language (BSL) on a range of topics that involve simple, everyday language use. They will gain basic skills and confidence in production and reception of BSL. The specification has been designed using the UK Occupational Language Standards 2010 at Level 1.

At the End of the Qualification, Learners Will Be Able to:

  • Understand and use a limited range of simple words and sentences in BSL
  • Take part in simple, everyday conversations in BSL
  • Give and follow simple directions or instructions in BSL
  • Give and follow simple familiar statements or descriptions in BSL.

Level 1 Award in British Sign Language is Suitable for Those Who

  • Want to learn basic language skills to communicate simple conversations with Deaf people
  • Want to learn new language skills as part of a programme of study
  • Want to progress to more advanced study and/or employment using BSL in the future
  • Are studying for personal development
  • Are parents, family, friends or colleagues of Deaf people.

Progression Route

Students who pass Level 1 could choose to further develop their BSL knowledge by enrolling on a Level 2 BSL course. The Manchester Deaf Centre offers Level 2 BSL evening courses which run for 2 hours per week, starting September 2022.

In A Nutshell...

  • Learn... a brand new language and develop your inclusive practice
  • Expand... your horizons, understand d/Deaf culture and how you can help deaf people feel more accepted
  • Collaborate ... with other students under expert external facilitation
  • Completely free ... access a course with a formal qualification which would normally cost £400
