Why iBSL

Michelle Teaching

As a Deaf-led awarding organisation, we understand better what Deaf people want and that is an advantage for choosing us. To teach our qualifications, you need to be trained and approved.

Class with Certificates

Learning the basics of BSL should be interesting and fun, but if you are serious about the language, you can go on and obtain higher qualifications – perhaps for work, or perhaps you have a Deaf family.

Why Learn British Sign Language?

mark

British Sign Language (BSL) is one of Britain’s approved languages and is used by around 125,000 people using it on a daily basis, whether at home in family units or at work.

Learning the basics of BSL should be interesting and fun, but if you are serious about the language, you can go on and obtain higher qualifications – perhaps for work, or perhaps you have a Deaf family. This often needs dedication, but can be very rewarding.

Testimonials

  • “I have enjoyed the ASM delivered by Mark last Friday. (Warrington)  It was very informative and it was good to see other people.  Mark was excellent in delivering his training.” – Yvonne Cobb

  • Quote from BSL Courses

    “We thoroughly enjoyed the ASM meeting and thought you both delivered this very well”

  • Quote from Belfast Metropolitan College

    “During the level 3 with IBSL, I really think IBSL is very good because it has structure which is helpful for me to know what to teach and prepare for assessment.

    If I need to enquire when I am not sure then I email IBSL office and they reply immediately which relieved me, They also use Skype which is useful

    Communication with IBSL is very good.

    I look forward to teaching level 2 with IBSL which starts in September 2016 in BMC (hope with level 1 as well) because I know what to prepare and what to do that help me to grow in confidence.”
