ISL Level 6 DCI Recognised by the NRPSI

This morning, in the season of giving, ISL received an early present.

After months of rigorous assessment to ensure the quality was high enough and the topics covered satisfy their high standards, the National Register of Public Service Interpreters (NRPSI) have recognised our Level 6 Diploma in Community Interpreting (DCI) qualification!

The NRPSI Qualifications Committee reviewed the DCI and has determined that applicants who pass the qualification, including the optional module ‘Supporting Interpreting Through Draft Written Translations From and Into English’ will meet the qualification registration requirements for ‘Full status’.

To our knowledge, this is the first time that any qualification other than the DPSI has achieved these requirements.

Applicants for registration with NRPSI who have passed the DCI without taking the optional translation module would meet the registration requirements by also providing evidence of passing the two translation units from the DPSI, or any other translation qualification that meets the qualification requirements within the National Occupational Standards for Interpreting.

This is amazing news for linguists around the UK as this now means they have an alternative route to becoming a fully qualified linguist. Not only that, but our DCI qualification has many additional benefits in addition to opening up many work opportunities.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to what 2017 holds for ISL!
