Interpreter Development Programme
This development programme has been designed to provide support and guidance to Trainee interpreters who are newly registered and looking to take their first steps into the world of interpreting.
We understand how important it is that you have a platform on which to develop, further understand and use the skills you have acquired.
We provide the support to graduates coming into the world of interpreting that is not presently available or easily accessible elsewhere.
Participants will engage in an exploration of the key skills that interpreters require on an everyday basis.
We know that people learn and develop better in an informal, relaxed but structured way. Our training events are lead by experienced trainers and practioners in the field of Sign Language interpreting
We believe that the best way of building confidence in using your skills is to be able to mix with people in the same position as you in a safe and controlled environment where you will get the encouragement to help you progress in your career.
All participants will be able to log their progress to obtain CPD evidence
