Herefordshire Council’s innovative language service is now able to offer more accredited training for interpreters.
Applications are now invited for people interested in training to become an interpreter, through a formally accredited Level 3 Community Interpreting course.
Harriet Yellin, Herefordshire Council’s equality officer, said: “These courses help us boost the number of linguists on the Herefordshire Language Network, which currently provides language services to organisations throughout the county and beyond.
“They provide a fantastic opportunity for anyone who would like to work as an interpreter, who loves using their language skills and who wants to develop as an individual. They are of particular significance, because no similar courses are offered outside large cities such as London and Birmingham.”
The Level 3 accredited course will run over six weekends from March to July 2015, with an induction session on Saturday 22 November 2014.
The deadline for applications is Monday 17 November 2014. To find out more and to download an application form, please visit: www.herefordshire.gov.uk/language.
