BSL Mode  

Learning the iBSL way

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.

IBSL offers a structured progression route from Level 1 BSL Studies up to Level 6, which will then lead to interpreting qualifications.

Where can I learn?

There are over 40 Centres delivering IBSL qualifications throughout the country. These include schools, colleges and also many private training agencies run by experienced Deaf teachers. Some agencies deliver only a limited range of our qualifications, such as Deaf Awareness or Deafblind qualifications, but many offer a full range of BSL Studies qualifications.
