Did you know that linguists with a DPSI qualification can access up to 80% more ‘complex’ interpreting assignments with the Ministry of Justice. Complex MOJ assignments also offer more attractive rates of payment, making the investment in a DPSI qualification worthwhile.

To increase your opportunities we recommend enrolling on our specially designed qualifications and we are currently offering grants towards DPSI qualifications.

Our courses will prepare you for specialist assignments and support your continuous professional development.

Level 6 Diploma in Public Service Interpreting (DPSI)

ISL is making the DPSI exam more accessible. You can enrol for exam dates every month of the year, the course is available anywhere in the UK, in over 200 languages. We have also ensured that the qualification is more affordable, saving you over £150 compared to other providers. In addition, the ISL qualification is the only DPSI to offer all 5 units at level 6, making it the highest standard DPSI on the market.

Level 6 Diploma in Community Interpreting (DCI)

Our Level 6 Diploma in Community Interpreting (DCI) is a vocational qualification which means you are assessed continuously throughout your studies via written and practical assessments – so no end of course exams! The DCI is the ideal choice for interpreters who would like to learn about law interpreting before being assessed. You will be assessed throughout the course, and as long as all assignments are completed to the specified criteria, you will receive your DCI Qualification.
