Course Content

Course Content


The aim of the qualification is to enable learners to use knowledge and skills already obtained from previous qualifications and through experience, to be able to work effectively, interpreting for deafblind people who use Deafblind Manual and Visual Frame and Hands On. Working in a variety of everyday settings including: conversations, socialising, educational, personal, employment (Access to Work). This qualification will provide learners with both the technical skills and strategies to be able to communicate with and interpret effectively for users of Deafblind Manual and Visual Frame and Hands on as well as the knowledge and skills involved with making language accessible to deafblind people. This will include and further develop understanding of ways to make the language and information accessible while maintaining meaning and an awareness of the use of additional communication methods to convey this meaning. The qualification is divided into two units each of which will be assessed separately. Although assessments can be taken straight after each unit has been taught, Signature suggests that all assessments are best taken at the end of the course when all teaching is complete.
