Course Structure

This is suitable for all ages, including pre-16 and for those who:

  • wish to learn basic BSL skills to facilitate simple communication with Deaf people while at work or in their community
  • wish to learn new BSL skills as part of a programme of study
  • wish to progress to more advanced study and/or employment using BSL in the future
  • are studying for personal development

This can be taken without any previous BSL experience at any level. This unit allows learners to gain basic skills. This can be taken accredited or non-accredited

Deaf people’s experience of communication when they interface with service providers and others in the community is often disappointing. Deaf people are often excluded and as a result can become isolated and frustrated
