Do you want to put your Auslan 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 Diploma of Auslan. With this qualification and some experience behind you, you could find yourself working in community organisations and/or the private sector.

The need for Auslan interpreters exists across every sector including:

  • 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)

  • Educational - at all levels of education, formal and informal.

This Diploma will specialise in Auslan - English interpreting.

Auslan skills are not taught in the Diploma of Interpreting (Auslan - English) qualification, so you will need to demonstrate:

  • BKSB testing in Literacy and  Numeracy - you will need to achieve a level 3
