Best Practice Refresher CPD

  • Are you a registered or trainee BSL interpreter?
  • Would you like to refresh your knowledge of best practice?
  • Do you want to explore past interactions and the decisions you made?
  • Would you like to gain 6 structured CPD points?

Femaura are pleased to offer an exciting new course!

This one-day course will refresh your knowledge of general best practice.

Whether you are a registered interpreter with many years of experience or a trainee keen to increase your knowledge, you will benefit by attending.

During the one-day course (6 hours) our experienced Deaf teacher will cover the following topics:

  • Ethics and Boundaries

Including discussion on mutable boundaries dependent on situation and environment.

  • Managing Control and Conflict

Leading on from boundaries; are you aware how your behavior and actions impact the interaction and overall outcome? How do the people you provide access to perceive you?

  • Dilemmas and Coping Strategies

How does humility and humanity coexist with unvarying ‘Codes of Ethic’ and ‘professionalism’? Real life scenarios will be discussed

The class will be very practical. Each best practice topic will include a discussion of at least two scenarios.

You will be encouraged to think outside the box; to explore your professional practice from differing perspectives, developing a more holistic understanding of the interpreter’s role and those you provide a service to.

Discussion and constructive feedback will be shared, based on current international research and practice methods to aid your reflective practice and support your professional development.

At the end of the day you will be given a certificate of attendance for CPD evidence.

The course will last for 6 hours, giving you 6 structured CPD points.


The weekend course will cost £100.00 for one day in BSL format.
