Signature Level 2 Certificate in British Sign Language

The Level 2 Certificate follows on from Level 1 and develops further the ability to communicate using BSL in a range of social and school, college or work-related contexts. Students will be expected to participate in longer and more open-ended exchanges than in Level 1.

Level 2 will be of interest to those wanting to progress onto higher BSL qualifications which are required for certain careers and roles such as a BSL/English Interpreter, Communication Support Worker, Teacher of the Deaf and other jobs working with the Deaf.
