The course will run for 11 weeks, with one full-day lesson per week. The course will aim to provide students with knowledge of:

  • Public services
  • The role of the interpreter
  • Interpreting methods and models
  • Interpreting practice through role plays
  • Cultural awareness
  • Confidentiality and impartiality
  • Interventions
  • Telephone interpreting
  • Sight translation
  • Professional code of conduct
  • Pathways into employment and further training


There is no formal examination but over the 10 lessons students will carry out a research project, build a bilingual glossary and gain practice experience through role play. Final grades depend on the submission of assignments, attendance, participation and practical application of skills learned.


Our trainers are experienced language professionals who will guide and support you throughout your studies to maximise your potential, and gain valuable skills to aid employability.

Who is it for

Anyone who is fluent in English and another language and looking for a new career opportunity to use their linguist abilities and support people in their community.


You will gain a nationally recognised Level 3 qualification which will allow you to work as a community interpreter throughout the UK.


Over the ten lessons the tutors will provide the necessary information to build a coursework portfolio and the skills to take through to a career in community interpreting. Lessons will include group work and role play practice.
