PASS programme

PASS stands for Professional Accreditation Support Scheme, and is an intensive inter-institutional 4 week training programme, aimed at helping young interpreting graduates to pass our accreditation tests.

The course ran in the summer periods of 2015 and 2016, and is needs based, which explains why it is not run every year.  Only candidates from those languages where there is a severe shortfall, either in the short or medium term, are invited to apply. Candidates are selected on the basis of their language combination, a well-motivated application, and performance at a pre-selection test.
