Diploma of Interpreting (LOTE-English)

Become an interpreter (languages other than English)!

This qualification will give you the skills and knowledge to interpret from a source language to a target language, in general dialogue and monologue settings, to work as an interpreter in a range of community and business settings including healthcare; welfare and community services; educational and social contexts.

Interpreting is also in demand for situations such as police interviews; over the counter interviews in government and community information services; disability assistance; professional services such as financial advisors or real estate; and other informal business and workplace interactions. 

This is the kind of work that can provide some very interesting experiences, but also be of great assistance to non-English speaking members of our community.
