Dynamic Community Interpreting CPD

CPD for BSL Interpreters

Dynamic Community Interpreting

  • Are you a registered or trainee BSL interpreter? Deaf interpreter? Deaf Translator?
  • What defines Community Interpreting?
  • Would you like to explore how you adapt to social-cultural changes?
  • 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:

  • Be cognizant of the deaf people you provide access for

Including discussion on the history of British Sign Language, a master class in deaf culture (including an insight into Deaf Way) and interpreting without prejudice.

  • Register without compromise

With day to day complex social-cultural variation, how do you maintain clarity in the messages you deliver?

  • Legislation for all parties

Are you familiar with the Equality Act, Human Rights or the UN Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities? Should you be?

The class will be very practical. Each dynamic community interpreting 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.
