Changes to Requirements for Trainee Sign Language Interpreters

In preparation for the new standards, which will be implemented from 1 April 2018, we have revised the guidance for TSLIs, Supervisors and Endorsers.

The document contains important information for TSLIs and those involved in teaching, assessing and supervising TSLIs.

You can also read our news article explaining the new standards, which was published on 15 January 2018.

National Occupational Standards in Interpreting

The revised National Occupational Standards in Interpreting have been approved and published on the UK standards website. Thank you to everyone who engaged with and supported this project.

Upcoming Meetings

We are attending the SCoD conference on 8 March and will have a market place stall.

The next NRCPD Board meeting is on 27 February in London.
