Level 4, Part Time
Application Form to be returned to Student Services
This 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 course will run over 30 weeks. Accredited by IBSL, the course is divided into 3 units as follows:
- Understand Extended Signed Language in a range of work contexts
- Sign using extended Signed Language in a range of work contexts
- Exploring Linguistics in British Sign Language
All three units can be achieved separately, but the full Level 4 Certificate in BSL Studies can only be given if there is a PASS in each unit.
It is recommended that entrants should have the Level 3 Certificate in BSL Studies before embarking on the Level 4 Certificate programme.
The qualification is also suitable for Deaf people wishing to acquire a qualification in their own language, as part of a progression route towards Deaf Interpreter status.
The unit will be assessed by four instruments of assessment, each of which will focus on separate areas requiring the learner to demonstrate competence in comprehension skills in the use of BSL.
Upon completion of this qualification, learners may progress as follows:
