British Sign Language Level 6

The IBSL Level 6 Award in British Sign Language Studies is one of an arrange of qualifications that have been developed to provide stepping stones leading to 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 consists of three units that are made up of 8 modules. All modules must be completed to be able to achieve the qualification.

  • DVD receptive – question and answer sheet
  • BSL to Voice Translation Skills – summarise instructions given by DVD or for example; webcam, facetime or Skype and relay information
  • Presentation of Deaf Humour
  • Presentation of Deaf Folklore
  • Debate – current affairs topic given by iBSL
  • Linguistic Essay – 2000 words
  • DVD Linguistics Observation – with multiple choice questions
  • ‘Live’ scenario – observed by an External Examiner

All students who would like to do the iBSL Level 6 will need to have an assessment. We do not charge for this assessment. This interview will be at the Deaf First offices or for those not able to travel to our premises, the interview will be via webcam
