This BSL Level 6 Interpreting course is in 2 parts;
- Part 1 is all theory (with some practical’s in preparation of part 2)
- Part 2 is your portfolio collection of evidence proving your capabilities.
Part 1 – is 6-8 months, so that is fixed.
Part 2 – depends on the student. The longest you are allowed to take before your application expires is 18 months. Most students average 9 months. You can do it faster if you can get all the evidence in play. So approx. 19 clips across 3 different domains with evaluations. Our assessors and IVs can match your pace.
Accreditation with NRCPD
With the completion of Part 1 you can register as a TSLI with the NRCPD. (£140, plus £30 first time registration fee) and our assessors will set up the paperwork and fees for mentoring development as required by the NRCDP.
With the completion of Part 2 you will be a fully qualified BSL Interpreter and can change your TSLI registration into RSLI with the NRCPD. (up to £230 depending on what you have left on your current membership). The assessors during part 2 will advise on how to produce CPD points for continued adherence to the NRCDP membership criteria.
So depending on your commitment and access to evidence for your portfolio – You can register for Part 2 right after completing Part 1, get the evidence collected in a month and you’re done in less than a year. Theoretically !
Please note; NRCPD membership applications are between you and the NRCPD.
