Level 1 Award in Understanding Community Interpreting

The role of the community interpreter is becoming increasingly important, particularly in regions with many minority linguistic communities. The community interpreter acts as a bridge between these communities and the public services, enabling people to access services and situations which would otherwise not be possible. The Level 1 Award in Understanding Community Interpreting introduces you to community or public service interpreting. It develops your awareness of the English language and knowledge, your understanding of community, public service and voluntary organisations where interpreters might work, the role of the community interpreter and some basic specialism knowledge.
