iBSL Level 6 Two Year Diploma in BSL/English Interpreting

Are you ready to embark on a career in interpreting?

Then this 2 year taught qualification will take you from registering as a Trainee Sign Language Interpreter (TSLI) after successful completion of the first part of the programme, to enabling you to qualify as a Registered Sign Language Interpreter (RSLI) status by the end.

The programme will take place over 18 days each year, 2 days a month over 10 months. The first four months will focus on improving your BSL and the fundamentals of interpreting theory and practice. We’ll cover continuous professional development; the role of the interpreter; interpreting theories and models; preparation and self-evaluation; as well as practical interpreting exercises.

The remainder of the programme will take your knowledge and understanding taught in the first part of the course to a much deeper level, whilst continuing to improve your BSL.
We’ll cover topics such as additional interpreting theories, modes and models; professional ethics; preparation and evaluation; linguistics and social linguistics; co-working; advanced English; technology; as well as translation. You’ll be out working as a TLSI enabling you to put your new skills into practice every day.

Assessments

You’ll be assessed through a mixture of observation, essays, multiple-choice exams and written assignments, which will be marked by a combination of your Teacher-Assesors, iBSL and other qualified witnesses.

Plus you will need a handful of clips as evidence of your interpreting performance, for your coursework file. But don’t worry! We take the stress away by providing many of these assessed interpreting activities within the programme days. We’ll provide the Deaf and hearing participants; make sure that everyone involved is at the right level. Leaving you to source just three pieces of evidence over the two-year duration of the programme, showcasing your best interpreting work.

In addition, you’ll have 1-1 time with your Teacher-Assessors to track your progress, discuss your performance and develop your coursework file.

Finally, there is a live assessment where you will plan and carry out a co-worked interpreting assignment. This will be laid on during the programme days and is assessed by iBSL.
