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
