​WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

Students in the PSP50916 Diploma of Interpreting course will learn about the interpreting process and how to apply interpreting English and Auslan language skills to achieve competent message transfer. 

Students will be given frequent opportunities to use their language/interpreting skills within interactive practice sessions and with a range of guest presenters and teachers. These sessions will be videoed for reflective practise purposes so that students can obtain feedback from their teachers and peers and also engage in self-evaluation.

Students will learn how to prepare for interpreting assignments by doing discourse analysis and considering all the variables relating to interpreting assignments. They will learn the professional skills required to work in the field, understand and apply the Code of Ethics to the work they do.

All students will have the opportunity to engage in a structured observation/mentoring program. This is designed to bridge the gap between formal study and practical community interpreting.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to prepare for sitting the NAATI Accreditation test, a prerequisite accreditation for most employers in the industry.
