British Sign Language Level 6

Please scroll down for a list of all upcoming BSL Courses.

The Level 6 Award in British Sign Language Studies is our highest level BSL qualification, and has been developed to provide a stepping stone into qualified sign language interpreter status, or a career working with Deaf people in situations where the use of sign language is an everyday communication tool. The learner, once qualified, will be able to understand and use complex BSL in a range of work and social contexts.

The qualification is accredited by Signature, and consists of three units that are made up of 6 modules. All modules must be completed to be able to achieve the qualification.

  • Persuasive informal skills
  • Eristic (debate) skills
  • Negotiation skills
  • Critical discussion
  • Formal presentation and inquiry
  • Receptive skills

All students who would like to do the BSL Level 6 will need to have an assessment. There is a non-refundable £45 fee for this assessment. This interview will be at the Deaf First offices. For those not able to travel to our premises the interview will be via webcam, Facetime or recording depending on circumstances.

Our next BSL Level 6 Course is set to go ahead on Saturday, the 9th of January 2021.



The minimum age for all of Deaf First’s BSL courses is 16.
