Translation Qualification Update
Added 11 Aug 2011
We are very pleased to announce that the Signature Level 6 Diploma in Sign Language Translation has been accredited by Ofqual. It is available for teaching from 1 September 2011.
The qualification has been approved by CfA and is based on the 2007 National Occupational Standards in Translating. There are five mandatory units, with a total of 850 Guided Learning Hours. This qualification shares a unit with level 6 NVQ Diploma in Sign Language Interpreting.
The units were developed as part of the Deaf Communications Infrastructure Development (DCID). The project brings together a consortium of six public sector and not-for-profit organisations from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to address the critical shortage of communication professionals working with Deaf people to public sector services.
