British Sign Language Level 1

A fun, academic course like no other. A chance to learn how to communicate without using your voice and learn the fascinating language of the Deaf Community.

A range of topics are studied that involve simple, everyday sign language that enable you to have conversations about work and personal life.

Participants will be able to access Deaf Solutions virtual learning environment, which will enable you to study and practice outside of class.

This 10-week course includes three assessments that involve having conversations with your tutor. This nationally recognised qualification is an asset to anyone’s CV.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand and use a limited range of simple words and sentences in BSL
  • Take part in simple, predictable conversations in BSL
  • Give and follow simple directions or instructions in BSL
  • Give and follow simple familiar statements or descriptions in BSL.

BSL Level 1 is the only courses in our prospectus where we will charge external organisations for attending. This is because GMMH has to commission Deaf Solutions to provide these courses. The cost of this course is £310 per person. Please note this charge does not apply to service users, carers, friends and family members of our service users or GMMH staff who will receive this course free of charge.
