Delivered on Friday mornings through the Dorset Training Academy, this 33 week Level 2 Certificate is designed to enable learners to develop their skills to communicate with Deaf people using British Sign Language (BSL) in a range of everyday situations. The qualification will allow learners to participate in longer and more varied conversations and develop their skills from the Level 1 Award.

The course will develop communication in BSL about real life, routine, and daily experiences. The learner will be able to deal with most routine communication and have enough understanding of grammar to cope with some non-routine communication.

The course content covers the following themes (with 3 out of 4 covered):

  • Everyday conversation – mandatory
  • Eating and drinking – optional
  • Spending and shopping – optional
  • Travel and holidays – optional

The course is assessed through practical development of skills throughout the course, along with formal externally assessed and recorded presentations and conversations in British Sign Language.

The course is delivered at the Cranford Avenue College site with free parking available.

The next course will run from 23rd September 2024 to 28th September 2025, Mondays from 9.30am – 1.30pm.

Fee: £724 with funding available – contact to discuss funding eligibility
