Do you want to put your bilingual skills to good use?

This course  has a focus on ethics of interpreting and concepts to assist in interpreting preparation.
It is best suited to people who have some experience in interpreting and have completed a Certificate IV in Spoken and Written English
With this qualification and some experience behind you, you could find yourself working in community organisations and/or the private sector.

The need for interpreters to help prevent misunderstandings and errors exists in sectors such as: 

  • health environments - assisting people with hospital appointments, clinics, specialist appointments, hospice care
  • social welfare -  helping people access services at organisations relating to the Department of Human Services (eg Centrelink, Medicare, Immigration etc)
  • legal - providing help with court appearances and documents, police interviews and prisons.

North Metropolitan TAFE is delivering this diploma course part-time, in groups or clusters of units.  The first cluster of units has a strong focus on the ethics of interpreting and is a perquisite for the second cluster of units.

We will be offering the first 3 introductory units on Tuesdays from 9am - 12, from 1pm - 4pm or from 5:30pm - 8:30pm, depending on numbers.

The application process to start studying in semester 2 will involve an interview and you will need to register your interest by 1 May 2018 to be assessed.

Local full time students

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.
