If your name’s not down you’re not coming in!

An Awareness of Working in Mental Health
Once again we are experiencing a demand for this highly successful training. Presented by a qualified sign language interpreter (RSLI) and a Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMHN) it is an introduction into working in mental health settings.

Covering topics such as medication, terminology, safety, different levels of psychiatric settings and what to expect when working on a ward.  This one day training is perfect for trainee and qualified interpreters who would like to dip their toe into this domain.

CPD points are awarded on attendance.

Cover Me, I’m Going In …
Lone Working training is coming to Manchester, in collaboration with Sarah Jane Banks.

The right to keep yourself safe is an area many professionals never think of in their day to day working lives.  This training is open to all language professionals; spoken language interpreters, sign language interpreters, lipspeakers, notetakers, palantypists.

A lone worker is someone who performs an activity that is carried out in isolation from other workers without close or direct supervision. Such people may be exposed to risk because often there is no-one monitoring their whereabouts.

Interpreters and other professionals are regularly in this situation
without any support strategies in place and just go from one assignment to
another without any prior thought as to their safety.

The above training will look at:

• What is a risky assignment?

• How to spot risks and hazards

• Ways to keep safe

• A buddy system

• What to do in the event of an incident or the threat of an incident

• Case studies and real experiences

Delivered by experienced practitioners in a safe environment this training is one of a kind.  CPD points will be awarded on attendance.

Coming soon to SG Interpreting
