Community Interpreting

CERTA Level 2 Award in Preparation for Work in Community Interpreting

We are not currently offering Community Interpreting in person at St John’s Centre. Our learning partner the WEA are offering it online – go to their website to find the next course.

The Level 2 Award is for students who are interested in community interpreting work in a voluntary or paid capacity in a range of settings, including housing, education, social care, welfare benefits, immigration and health. The Award is suitable for students who wish to gain knowledge and skills of community interpreting including the role of codes of practice, and learn about the settings where interpreters may be required to work.

To join this course, you must be a confident speaker of English and be fluent in at least one other language. You also need to be able to read and write English at Level 1.
