Course Content

Course Content


The Signature Level 1 Award in British Sign Language qualification is for absolute beginners with no previous knowledge of sign language. The course will give you a taste of the ‘deaf world’, introducing you to the basics of British Sign Language and deaf culture. Learning begins by exploring the visual-gestural modality of human language and also some background knowledge about deaf people, their language and their culture. There is an emphasis on building vocabulary relating to a wide range of topics, including (but by no means limited to): fingerspelling, eating and drinking, transport, directions, holiday, family, hobbies and interests, and work and school. Our native deaf teachers deliver the class in a fun, informal and relaxed environment and include a variety of teaching and learning methods to meet the needs of all learners. You will have access to our dedicated online e-learning platform, and we've even thrown in a discounted subscription to the Signature Homework online resource to help you practice outside of classroom hours. There are three assessments in total: one for each of the three units that make up the full qualification. All of the assessments take the form of a signed conversation with your teacher. The exams take place throughout the course (rather than all at the end) at a time when your teacher thinks the class is ready. Exams will take place during normal classroom hours so it is essential that you make yourself available for the exam. We understand that life can happen so if you know you won’t be able to make the exam date then please let your teacher know as soon as possible. Additional fees may apply if you cannot do the exam on the allocated day and time. In order to achieve the full qualification, you must successfully complete all three exams. If you are planning to do the Level 2 Certificate in BSL course afterwards, then you must successfully complete all three exams.
