SQA Level 1 BSL (SCQF 4)
- Edinburgh & Lothians
This course is designed for those who have completed the SQA Introduction to BSL course.
If you have not completed the Introduction course but do have experience of using BSL, you may be able to go straight into Level 1. This would apply to CODAs (children of deaf* adults) or siblings / other family members of BSL users. In this circumstance, you will need to attend a skills test with one of our tutors to assess which level you are best suited to joining. The skills test is free of charge. To book a skills test email firstname.lastname@example.org
We take the safety of our students and tutors very seriously. As we are currently unsure what the government guidance will be in August, we have taken the decision to reduce the number of students accepted on to the in-house classes to 8 people instead of 16. This will ensure that social distancing can be observed in the classroom. Other measures are currently being put in place to ensure the safety of everyone who enters our building once it re-opens.

- Communicate using straightforward BSL
