What is BSL Level ONE?

Signature’s Level ONE Award in BSL is the foundation of learning British Sign Language, taking you into the world of this beautiful and rich visual language, with its own culture and community. The ideal place to start your BSL journey. 

Positive Signs Training will teach you, support you and encourage you to get to your desired destination for using BSL, whether that’s communicating with a Deaf friend or family member, supporting a Deaf child, becoming a Communication Support Worker or a Registered Sign Language Interpreter … in fact, the list goes on and on!!!

And we’ll be with you every step of the way.

By starting BSL Level ONE, you will gain an understanding of the two key elements of BSL – productive and receptive skills. These are taught via a range of topics that we use in our daily lives and by the end of the course, you will have acquired language that enables you to communicate with Deaf people.
