This is the first in a series of 3 bespoke training courses which has been developed for BSL interpreters regarding the abuse and safeguarding of adults. It is NOT a generic basic awareness course The course was originally designed for  BSL interpreters in 2012 and has been well received in various parts of England; it has been updated to incorporate the changes which were introduced on 1st April 2015 with the introduction of the Care Act 2014. The main aim of this course is to ensure that interpreters know what to do when they suspect that someone is being abused, is at risk of harm or when they receive a disclosure.

World Café Day
SATURDAY 21st APRIL 2018
LEEDS DEAF CENTRE
£30
(though likely to be cheaper
if we have good numbers)

The idea of the day is to carousel around different facilitated groups discussing certain professional or practical interpreting dilemmas through scenarios and how one would resolve these.

We want this to be an enjoyable day, to get together, socialise, share ideas and look at different perspectives whilst considering the codes of conduct and the code of ethics in a safe, supportive environment.

Finishing off with a plenary session the day will hopefully give us more insight and reflection shaping how practice moving forward both as individuals and collectively.

The day will be worth structured 6 CPD hours – the more interpreters attend the richer the experience!

Open to all registered interpreters and regulated trainee interpreters
