Entry Level 1: Community Interpreting - PDA1015
Entry Level 1: Community Interpreting
Professional development short course
This short course is an introduction to community interpreting and covers the fundamental skills and knowledge required to work as an interpreter in Australia. Topics covered include interpreting skills and techniques, the T&I industry, NAATI accreditation and testing, memory skills, ethics and the role of the interpreter, common interpreting settings, and dialogue interpreting practice. The short course will combine presentations from experienced T&I professionals and practical interpreting exercises.
This short course does not include NAATI accreditation. For those interested in gaining NAATI accreditation, further training and testing are required. The short course will provide information about how to gain this. Participants who successfully complete Entry-Level Community Interpreting Level 1 may be invited to attend a further Entry-Level Community Interpreting Level 2 workshop later in the year, which will extend the knowledge and skills established in this course.
This professional development short course is run with the support of the Department of Premier and Cabinet, State Government of Victoria.
Students may also apply for a bursary which allows for a heavily discounted enrolment fee in cases of financial hardship. Bursary applicants must satisfy the criteria to be considered. The cut-off date for bursary applications is 7 days before the course start date.
