Part 2 of the Signature Level 6 NVQ Certificate in BSL assesses candidates on their ability to meet the Signature qualification specification and follows the training component, Part 1. This Signamic course adheres to the Signature qualification specification.
There will be a preliminary half-day interview to determine candidates eligibility to participate in the assessment programme. Once candidates have been accepted onto the course, they will be required to attend 2 consecutive induction days and a 1-day workshop where they will gain a full understanding of NVQ procedures and requirements, learn all about the portfolio and what evidence is required.
Following this, candidates will then be required to attend four 2-hour tutorials over 4 months on one of the two monthly course dates. This means that they will meet with their assessor to get feedback and support for their clips. Participation in these tutorials should be sufficient to complete all portfolio requirements, however, if candidates require additional time to complete their portfolio they will be able to arrange extra sessions with their assessor.
Candidates are also welcome to use Signamic premises during course times outside of their allocated tutorial time to film evidence. Signamic will arrange suitable role models to be present on these days for evidence collection. Candidates are also welcome to film with classmates.
The total number of required clips is 8, half of which will be will be arranged by Signamic.
At the beginning of the programme candidates will be provided with a simple and easy-to-use blank portfolio to complete.
The programme consists of 2 units:
BSL601 receptive skills
BSL602 productive skills
Certificate/Progression Successful candidates will be awarded Signature Level 6 NVQ Certificate in BSL and will be able to progress to interpreting qualifications.
