British Sign Language Level 1

This qualification teaches how to  communicate using British Sign Language (BSL) on a range of topics using simple, everyday language and can be taken without any previous BSL experience.

By the end of the Course, you will be able to:
  • understand and use a range of simple words and sentences
  • participate in simple, everyday conversations 
  • give and follow simple directions 

Our Level 1 BSL Course is suitable for those who:

  • Would like to learn basic skills to communicate simple conversations with other BSL users
  • Would like to progress to more advanced study and/or employment using BSL in the future
  • Are studying for personal development
  • Have parents, children, family, friends or colleagues who are Deaf BSL users.

Hi Kent will be starting more new Level 1 British Sign Language courses throughout Kent in the near future. 

All Level 1 Courses cost £410 per person (including assessment fees). Payments can be made by debit/credit card, cheque, cash at one of our offices or we can invoice your employers if they are funding the course. 

Early enrolment is recommended, as our outstanding success rates mean that our Courses always fill up quickly.

All courses take a break at school holiday times.
