Two days stuck in a hotel with a group of like-minded peers! A dream come true or your worst nightmare?!
This is an exciting new masterclass for experienced interpreters working with the police and courts. The weekend is aimed at those wishing to take their professional skills to a new level.
This masterclass will focus on many of the more complex issues we have to deal with when working in this challenging domain; issues such as working as a professional team, dealing with complex legal concepts, language and translation issues and developing our language skills to enable us to function effectively. We will look at a variety of strategies to enhance your performance and offer an excellent opportunity for networking with others in the field.
The weekend will be facilitated by Byron Campbell, an interpreter with 40 years’ experience, and we will also be working with two highly skilled and experienced deaf relay interpreters. We also have a District Court Judge joining the master class for a Q&A session and an opportunity to elicit the views of the bench on how we can provide the highest level of service to the courts.
Included in the fees are two full days of interactive discussions and presentations, an evening session on the Saturday, all meals, refreshments and first class accommodation.
The masterclass will be offered twice in October/November.
The first weekend will be held near Stratford-upon-Avon on the 20th& 21stOctober. The second weekend will be in Leeds on the 17th& 18thNovember. Venues details will be sent on acceptance of your place on the masterclass.
