Level 6 Certificate in BSL

The Level 6 Certificate in British Sign Language (BSL62) qualification will develop the learner’s language skills  towards Level 6 of the National Occupational Standards for Languages (CILT 2010). Upon successful completion of this qualification, the learner will be able to use and understand complex BSL in all types of social and professional interaction.

The assessment criteria for this qualification are based on the UK National Occupational Standards for Languages at Level 6 (‘complex’ language use). Upon successful completion of this qualification, learners will be able to demonstrate language skills equivalent to an undergraduate degree in Modern Languages.


Qualification structure

Candidates must demonstrate both receptive and productive BSL skills at level 6, and in all of the eight topics that make up this qualification. Internal and external assessments may cover any of the topics listed in this qualification.

The natural context of using BSL is in two-way interactions (discussions, conversations, debates etc.), as well as one-way interactions (monologues, presentations etc.). The candidate is therefore expected to demonstrate receptive and productive skills in both two-way and one-way interactions. Signature recommends the best approach to teaching and assessing this qualification is by covering both receptive and productive skills together.
