Train for the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIoL) Diploma in Police Interpreting (DPI).
Qualified interpreters and translators for the police are in high demand and this programme will give you the expert knowledge and practical experience you need to take the CIoL DPI examination. DPI holders can apply to register on the National Register of Public Service Interpreters (NRPSI).
Through a mix of online interactive seminars, activities, research and reflection you'll gain the essential training you need to take the CIoL DPI exam and you’ll learn to work collaboratively using our e-learning technologies.
Additionally, you’ll get the flexibility to tailor your studies to your preferred language combinations.
You'll attend an online interactive seminar every Thursday, between 3.00pm to 5.00pm. There will be 12 online workshops and a range of online synchronous and asynchronous learning learning activities, follow-up tasks and projects.
In addition to your workshop sessions, you'll have tutorials with your Language Consultant. This will be a native speaker of your Other Language and an experienced interpreter and translator. Your Language Consultant will help you with all aspects of your interpreting and translation out of English into your OL target language, including advising on bilingual terminology.
Assessment on the programme is via Formative Assessment tasks which are set at regular intervals throughout the programme. These include:
You'll receive feedback on your assessment tasks in a number of ways including written comments, video and audio recordings and/or in tutorials.
The Summative Assesment is the DPI exam which is set and marked by the CloL. Your final exam will take place in June at our CloL exam centre.
On completion of your programme, you'll receive a Certificate of Completion.
