Your journey continues! This is where things start to get a bit different from BSL Levels ONE and TWO. Signature’s Level THREE Certificate in BSL takes your understanding to a whole new level. It deepens your receptive and productive skills so you can engage in longer interactions on a broader range of topics.
Level THREE is suitable if you want to continue learning as a hobby, to improve interactions with friends and family, or if your journey is leading you towards a career working with Deaf people, maybe as a Communication Support Worker, or a Support Worker for Deaf People, where you need a deeper understanding of the language and deaf culture. Or even as the next step towards becoming a Registered Sign Language Interpreter or Translator!
By starting this course, you are around halfway along the full BSL Journey because the next level is BSL Level SIX, then onto an Interpreting course. You have come so far, well done!! You are already halfway there, let’s get on with it and learn BSL Level THREE!!
There are three key Learning Outcomes:
LO1 - Use receptive and productive skills to engage in varied social interaction.
LO2 - Maintain fluency, grammatical accuracy and coherence in sustained language.
LO3 - Understand sustained signed communication containing varied language.
The learning outcomes are delivered via a wider range of set topics, including:
- Home Life
- Social & Recreational Activites
- Education & Training
- Consumer Issues & Daily Living
- Deaf History & Culture
Class tuition will involve group sessions, tutorials, student/tutor observations, presentations and mock assessments leading up to preparation for the end of unit assessments.
How you will be assessed?
There are three assessments for Level THREE, which take a different format to Levels ONE and TWO.
- Assessment 1 - Formal presentation to your teacher.
- Assessment 2 - Informal conversation between you and your teacher.
- Assessment 3 - Receptive skills video, where you will be assessed on your understanding of a story based on one or more of the set topics.
