Signature Level 3 Award in BSL

Signature Level 3 Award in BSL

A level 3 Certificate in British Sign Language

Qualification aim
Level 3 Certificate in British Sign Language (BSL) caters for the learning needs of those who already have competence in BSL at Level 2.  Successful learners must be able to demonstrate competence at Level 3 of the UK Occupational Language Standards (CILT, 2010).  This means that the learner will be able to understand and use varied BSL in a range of work and social situations.

Unit structure
The qualification is divided into three units each of which will be assessed separately. Although assessments can be taken straight after each unit has been taught, Signature suggests that all assessments are best taken at the end of the course when all teaching is complete.
