You must attend an initial assessment and induction session before you enrol in any of our Diploma in Public Service Interpreting courses.
At the induction session you will find out more about the courses, will meet the course tutors and will have an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about working in this field. We will also undertake assessments to ensure that the course is at the right level for you. We aim to assess the fluency and accuracy of your written and spoken English.
Following the induction session, we will then contact all applicants with the outcome.
Your work will have two components: topic knowledge of English law and police procedures, and techniques and practice of consecutive and simultaneous interpreting. You must be able to work independently as no specific language tuition is available.
Tutor feedback on class activities. 2 Translations into foreign language marked by a language specialist. Tutor and peer assessment when performing in a role-play
Please bring a valid passport, UK birth certificate or a freedom pass to enrol on this assessment.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
