This just in from Gateway Family Services:
In response to mounting need for community language provision amongst our clients — and especially amongst new arrival communities — Gateway Family Services is planning to formalise and extend its existing interpretation services by offering a training course for interpreters.
Our first group of interpreters will start on Thursday 16th May 2013, but there are still some places available.
You don’t need any prior qualifications – just a willingness to learn! However, although English will probably be your second language, you need to be able to speak English well.
So if you speak French, Somali, Arabic, Bengali, Romanian, or any other language that is spoken in Birmingham, and think you could benefit from our scheme, get in touch.
