OVERVIEW


PSP20218 Certificate II in Auslan offers a basic introduction to signing in Auslan and is consistent with the Certificate II level of the Australian Qualifications Framework.

The course is designed to;
  1. Develop the knowledge and skills required to communicate in Auslan on familiar and routine matters, in personal, social, employment and learning contexts.
  2. Develop the knowledge and skills required to identify the fundamental and major differences between Auslan and English structure.
  3. Develop the knowledge and skills to follow a range of Deaf protocols and customs to interact with the Deaf Community in a culturally appropriate and sensitive way.
  4. Develop knowledge about the major features of the Deaf Community and its culture and values, especially the value of signed languages. This knowledge underpins appropriate interactions with the Deaf Community when conversing in Auslan.

KEY FEATURES

Classes are offered in a either a blended model or an online model of teaching. The only difference between the two is that the language units which equate to 5 hours per week are delivered online in live Zoom sessions. In both models, courses have a combination of live classes, online learning, home study and community contact requirements. Face to face and live online sessions are timetabled in the Course Guide, however outside this time, students are expected to complete approximately 20 hours of online learning, home study and community contact per week. 

Students will attend an Auslan Only Weekend and other events aimed at Certificate II level. These events will have members from the Deaf Community and you will be encouraged to turn “off” your voice. 


ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

There are no prerequisites for this course, however Sign Language 1 and/or 2 and/or Sign Online is recommended.

All our face to face classes are held in venues with COVID safe plans. We will keep you safe by ensuring you are seated 1.5 meters apart from other students. No pens or other materials are to be shared. You will be asked to sign in and your temperature will be taken.
