Level 2 Certificate in British Sign Language

In order for you to enrol in Level 2, we may request to see proof of your attainment of a Level 1 Award, or details of prior learning. Please contact us if you are unsure of your appropriate level or have any questions about this.

This qualification 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 than at Level 1. 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. Learners should be taught a number of regional variations in sign language.

The qualification is divided into three units, each of which can be achieved separately.

The units can be done in any order at any time but it is recommended that the content of Unit BSL201 is covered before Unit BSL202 or BSL203. To achieve the full Level 2 Certificate in British Sign Language, candidates are required to achieve all units.

The full Qualification Specification can be found on the Signature website here.

Please note that all our courses require regular attendance as well as independent study time and completion of homework.

The cost of the course including exam fees and certificate is £690.00.

If you opt out of taking the exams, the cost without exam fees is £527.00. You can always decide to take and pay for the exams later.

We offer payment plans for three monthly instalments, for a small direct debit fee. To secure your place, please choose the option to pay a £50 deposit at checkout. We will then send you a link to set up three monthly Direct Debit payments of £215.00.

Please note that completing a BSL course requires time and commitment. Please ensure that you are available to attend all or most of the course dates, and that you will have time to complete homework and independent study.

Payment made for courses or training sessions is non-refundable. Refunds are only considered in exceptional circumstances and any such refunds are made at our discretion. Please refer to our terms and conditions if you have any questions about this policy.
