This Level 1 Award 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.



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.

This is an evening course and normally runs one evening a week from 6.00pm to 8.00pm for 32 weeks.

  What You Will Learn

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

The qualification is divided into three units, each of which can be achieved separately. Learners who are new to BSL should cover BSL101 first, as units BSL102 and BSL103 build on this knowledge. Units BSL102 and BSL103 can be taken in any order.

To achieve the full Level 1 Award in British Sign Language, candidates must pass all units.

  Entry Requirements

BSL competence standards include requirements for candidates to have sufficient sight, manual dexterity, facial and body movement to produce and receive BSL. Level 1 Award in British Sign Language can be taken without any previous BSL experience at any level. This course is aimed at 19+ students.

  Progression

On completion of Signature Level 1 Award in British Sign Language you can progress on to Signature Level 2 Certificate in British Sign Language.

A photo of Clare Reed

Clare studied the FdA Early Childhood Studies and the BSc Health, Community and Social Sciences. She chose to study at Saltash as the course fitted in well around her work commitments and childcare needs. She enjoyed the opportunities that occurred during her time at the college.

" I managed to gain a Level 3 Paediatric First Aid certificate and attended conferences that I would otherwise not be privy to. I had the opportunity to fundraise for Childrens Hospice Southwest as part of a module and was privileged enough to visit Little Harbour, a truly humbling experience.

I went into employment as the Charity Coordinator and Youth Worker for TICTAC Liskeard. The setting is within Liskeard School and Community College grounds and I love that I have a broad range of experience with children and young people and that I am able to apply the knowledge achieved throughout my studies."
