Training in the UK
In the UK, Interpreting Pathways offers a range of CPD opportunities for those at all stages of their career. We also deliver initial interpreter training, for those seeking to enter the profession and become qualified. We support interpreters throughout their careers through mentoring, reflective practice groups and re-registration.
The Interpreting Pathways Level 6 course aims to take you to the point of readiness for work as a registered qualified interpreter.
Our expert team of interpreting teachers and assessors will support you through all stages of the programme, with additional input from specialist trainers in particular subject areas. We offer extensive teaching and assessment hours to enhance your learning and assist you in your entry to practice as professional interpreters. Our training is characterised by an emphasis on detailed feedback at all stages of the programme, in order to suit your individual learning and development.
