This iBSL qualification aims to further Learners’ experiences and development in communication through British Sign Language (BSL) with Deaf people at an extended level.
A Level 4 course will enable development in functional BSL communication in more depth than at earlier levels, requiring the ability to exchange, present and understand information, ideas, advice and opinions at normal speed, and also develop an awareness of cultural interaction with Deaf people who use BSL. This also means that you can understand discussions, debates or live shows that might be delivered in BSL.
The qualification is also suitable for Deaf people wishing to acquire a qualification in their own language.
For more full course details see see iBSL Level 4.
iBSL qualifications are available to learners age 12+
