Postgraduate modules in Advanced BSL/ English Interpreting

We have recently developed online modules as detailed below:
Theory and Practice of Interpreting 1, and Theory and Practice of Interpreting 2.

These modules will be suitable for experienced practitioners who have been through academic training in the past, as well as those who may have joined the profession via vocational routes. All modules will aim to engage interpreters to reflect more critically about their work and relate professional practice to evidence-based research. These modules will be appropriate for CPD purposes, with each module equating to approximately 150 hours of study, comprising formal lectures, group discussions, self-study, and the completion of an assignment.

These modules are due to come online in September 2017, with further related modules planned to be introduced over the next few years. 

You can register for regular updates about the development of these CPD opportunities by emailing or can contact Dr Ben Matthews Dr Rachel Mapson for further information.
