NEW Deaf Solutions 3 Signature Level 3 award in British Sign Language – Manchester

Qualification Aim

The Level 3 certificate in BSL caters for the learning needs of those who already have competence in BSL at Level 2. By the end of the programme, the learner will be able to understand and use varied BSL in a range of work and social situations.

Successful completion of the qualification can be used as evidence of the language skills needed in order to operate independently and at an advanced level in BSL and will be useful for those who currently or wish to work regularly with Deaf people or those who wish to expand their knowledge and skills in BSL.


On completion of this qualification, the learner may wish to progress to Signature Level 6 NVQ Certificate in BSL and from there onto Interpreting programmes.

What’s involved?

The qualification is made up of three units:

  • Linguistics
  • Receptive skills
  • Productive skills

There will be a range of classroom teaching, tutorials, homework, observed practice and feedback sessions that will culminate in a series of assessments to cover the three units.

Cost:     £695.00 plus assessment fees

Payment plans are available to all learners on application and a 10% discount is applied to any learner on a Deaf Solutions 3 course with prior learning through one of our other courses.

Just as a reminder, Deaf Solutions 3 is already registered as a provider of NVQ Level 3 in BSL and has successful experience of teaching this level of BSL curriculum. We hope you’ll come and join us at the start of another new Level 3 programme.
