An Introduction to Community Interpreting – Dual Role

This training will review the foundational principals and skills required in bilingual interpreting. 

Important Session Information:

“An Introduction to Community Interpreting – Dual Role” training focuses on the essential foundations of interpreting but also delivers specific application to the role of the interpreter within the public school, special education context. This interactive training is designed for bilingual individuals working in dual roles in school settings – as interpreters and in a “primary” employment role – but is highly applicable to any school staff/faculty member
involved in special education/ARD meetings or who interact with limited English proficient

Day 1 of the training covers some of the basics of interpreting, including the primary goals and functions of the interpreter, the modes of interpreting, and the interpreter’s code of ethics or standards of professional behavior.

Day 2 of the training will conclude the discussion of interpreting basics with an overview of best practices for facilitating the interpreted session and the roles an interpreter may assume.

If for some reason this session can not meet face-to-face, it will be moved to a virtual format.
