Building on 40 years of experience in teaching Auslan through non-accredited classes, Deaf Services extended its course offering to include nationally recognised qualifications through the establishment of a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Access Training & Education (RTO #41192), in 2015.
Access Training & Education (ATE) provides a range of qualifications in Auslan starting from the Certificate II in Auslan all the way to the Diploma of Interpreting.
Qualifications received through ATE are recognised by employers and other educational facilities.
You can access more information on the qualifications offered at the bottom of this page.
This is the pathway to PSP50916 - Diploma of Interpreting (LOTE-English).
The Student Handbook contains information about ATE’s obligations towards our students, information about students' rights and obligations towards ATE, as well as links to the relevant policies.
Students should read the Student Handbook prior to enrolling into an accredited course. You can access the Student Handbook here.
Students who have completed some formal/informal training and/or have prior experience in Auslan may be eligible for Credit Transfer or Recognition of Prior Learning.
If you wish to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning or Credit Transfer, download this Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning Application Form, complete it and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can access the Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning Policy here or in the Student Handbook.
