There is no teaching for this award. You will need to have completed language development training before attending as this course only enables you to practise conversation and understanding (receptive) skills. During the practise sessions, you will be given guidance on how to improve:
- A range of linguistic elements of BSL such as handshapes, timelines, verbs and sign order
- Multi-channel signs
- Cultural conventions
We provide group sessions and one to one feedback opportunities to help you develop and improve your signing skills.
The practice sessions will help you prepare for the assessments. There are four assessments:
- 2A1: receptive skills
- 2A2: presentation skills
- 2A3: conversation skills
- 2A4: group conversation skills – external assessor ‘live’ assessment
