Description

Working with Interpreters

This workshop, delivered by the CISVic, provides participants with the skills to successfully communicate with clients using either on-site or telephone interpreting. This training will provide participants with:

- an understanding of why an interpreter is different to using a bilingual family member

- information about how interpreters are trained

- skills to ensure that an interview with an interpreter runs smoothly

- ways of responding if the interview doesn’t seem to be going well

The thought of using an interpreter for the first time can be daunting, this training will help to provide you with the knowledge and confidence to overcome this. Once you've done this training and used an interpreter once or twice you will see just how easy it is!

Please note that this is NOT a public event and is limited to volunteers and paid staff from CISVic member agencies.
