Selecting an accredited course provider

Students are advised to enrol with one of iBSL’s Centres or another Awarding Body if wishing to study a BSL qualification. Please be aware training supplied by training centres or an online organisation who are not listed with iBSL or another Awarding Body will be unlikely to provide appropriate training towards recognised BSL qualifications.
