a.Interpreting for the Police Workshop (2 Day)

£150.00 inc. VAT

“Extremely useful and practical information which I can follow step by step.”

Utilising content taken directly from our Level 6 Diploma in Police Interpreting, this two day workshop provides you with detailed background knowledge of processes, policies and terminology that you need to be aware of when interpreting for the Police and will also provide you with the opportunity to build your terminology and practice interpreting in Police situations with other interpreters in a safe environment.

Available for bilingual interpreters in all languages, this workshop combines  tutor led sessions, group exercises, professional discussions, homework exercises, research activities and hands-on practise sessions to help you to build your knowledge and skills in a police setting.

This course is beneficial for interpreters who are interested in adapt their skills to be able to interpret in Police situations and also for interpreters who already provide interpreting within Police settings who would like to refresh or further develop their skills and knowledge.

This course is only open to individuals who:

  • Already have an interpreting qualification (Level 3 Certificate in Community Interpreting, Level 4 Certificate in Community Interpreting, Diploma in Public Service Interpreting (DPSI) or an Interpreting Degree)


  • Have more than 100 hours in providing professional interpreting

Note: this is not an interpreting qualification and although the content of this course can be used to help you prepare for interpreting qualifications it is not enough in isolation for you to qualify as a police interpreter.
