BSL Level 1
Introduction to BSL (unit 101)
Unit 101 is the first of three units that make up the full level 1 qualification in BSL. An introduction to BSL can be used as a taster session, to prepare you for the full BSL Level 1, or to simply start you off in learning sign language. Using Signatures Level 1 criteria - you can choose the 101 unit only which is ideal for frontline staff. Unit 101 consists of a maximum of 10 hours and can be delivered in varying formats - 3 hours a week or even one 6 hour day with a two hour preparation and assessment.
Unit 101 enables candidates to use BSL in simple situations to introduce, produce and respond to basic communications.
Anyone can join unit 101 and we can deliver the training at your workplace for your convenience.
A certificate of attendance will be included and if desired assessments for 101 can be arranged.
