BSL/English interpreter support

 is able to offer support to BSL/English interpreters, whether you are a Trainee Sign Language Interpreter (TSLI) or a Registered Sign Language Interpreter (RSLI), whether you are inexperienced or experienced.


Do you feel it has been a while since you gained your BSL qualification and not had feedback on your BSL skills since then?


Perhaps you have recently qualified as a BSL interpreter and want to continue improving  your BSL skills?


Do you have interpreting dilemmas and would like a Deaf person's viewpoint?


Or, as part of your CPD, you would like some feedback on your BSL skills?


"I became a registered qualified Sign Language Interpreter yonks ago and wonder if my BSL skills are still at a high standard?"

"Can someone observe me working in a live interpreting situation and give me constructive feedback afterwards?"

"My team of interpreters face interpreting dilemmas daily and would like a Deaf person's viewpoint."


What do we offer

We can offer observations at real interpreting situations, followed by a private 1-1 tutorial, giving constructive feedback.  We also can come to the interpreter(s)' workplace and offer training to small groups of interpreters.  

Examples of observations of real interpreting situations
  • events, e.g. ghost tour
  • museum tours, e.g. Abbey House Museum
  • Leeds City Museum
  • theatre interpreting
  • meetings, e.g. neighbourhood watch meeting


Benefits of BSL/English interpreter support
