Career-boosting Interpreting course brought to Leeds by popular demand

21 May 12


The School of Lifelong Education and Development at the University of Bradford will be bring its Community Interpreting course to Leeds for the first time, starting on 19 June, 2012.

This course gives individuals with a second or third language the boost they need to become qualified as a professional Community Interpreter - perfect for people who deliver interpreting services on a voluntary basis or those working in the public sector who would like to formalise their experience.

This course has a proven track record of assisting unemployed people back into work as it enables people to start working as an interpreter on a professional basis. Over 150 students have successfully completed the course, with many now working as professional interpreters in both public and private sector organisations across the West Yorkshire and beyond.

Eleanor Clyde-Evans, Head of Community Engagement at the University of Bradford said: "This course had seen growing popularity in Bradford, empowering local people to use their bilingual abilities to get paid interpreting work. Due to demand we are for the first time bringing the course to Leeds, where we think it will prove a popular choice for those looking to boost their employability. This is helped by the fact we work closely with a number of Interpreting services across the region, offering an solid route from learning to paid interpreting work."
