About BSL Level 2
We follow Signature’s qualification scheme, which is designed to enable learners to develop an ability to communicate with Deaf people using BSL in a range of familiar contexts, participating in longer and more open-ended exchanges than at Level 1.
The course will develop functional communication in BSL about a range of real life, routine, and daily experiences. The learner will be able to deal with most routine language tasks and have a sufficient grasp of grammar to be able to cope with some non-routine tasks.
The qualification is split into three units, BSL201 / BSL202 / BSL203, each can be achieved separately.
To achieve the full Level 2 Certificate in British Sign Language, students must pass all the units.
|BSL201||BSL Receptive Skills||Multiple-choice examination||Externally assessed with a Signature assessor|
|BSL202||BSL Productive Skills||Presentation in BSL||Externally assessed with a Signature assessor|
|BSL203||BSL Conversational Skills||Conversation in BSL||Externally assessed with a Signature assessor|
The qualification has four themes:
