iBSL Level 4 Certificate in British Sign Language

On this course you will develop the ability to communicate in BSL in more depth than at earlier levels. You will be required to exchange, present and understand information, ideas, advice and opinions at normal speed. You will also develop your 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.



Course Structure

The qualification is divided into three units as follows:

  • Understand Extended Signed Language in a range of work contexts
  • Sign using Extended language in a range of work contexts
  • Exploring Linguistics in British Sign Language

The Total Qualification time is 120 hours with 70 hours of Guided Learning.

All three units can be achieved separately, but the full Level 4 Certificate in British Sign Language Studies can only be given if there is a PASS in each unit.

For more full course details see see iBSL Level 4.

iBSL qualifications are available to learners age 12+
