Following a number of requests to bring our popular CPD events to more venues, we delighted to announce workshops in NEWPORT, LONDON and NEWCASTLE in early 2020
These highly interactive and popular days are run by experienced Police Detectives with particular experience of working with interpreters. The trainers are practitioners with supporting legal and investigative degrees and Zakon has found itself at the forefront of police interpreter education since establishing three years ago.
Our Interpreting Police Interviews Effectively Workshop includes inputs on both witness and suspect interviews that culminates with an interactive practical exercise covering topical issues drawn from live cases involving interpreters.
Our Interpreting Advanced Interviews Workshop covers interpreting Vulnerable Witness Interviews (visually recorded), Custody Procedures/Risk Assessments, Achieving Best Evidence Questioning styles and the enhanced cognitive interview. This day is designed to provide interpreters with the knowledge and confidence to interpret serious, complex and major crime interviews with both witnesses and suspects, including those that are vulnerable.
Whilst intensive, our workshops are delivered in a relaxed environment with plenty of time built in to meet colleagues and build professional relationships. Each workshop is delivered in excellent facilities and includes food, refreshments, course certificates and all materials.
Details of how to book each event can be found on the following links:-
Places are sold on a strictly first come first served basis and we look forward to welcoming both new and returning interpreters.
We also attend individual organisations or professional groups to run these days, if you would like further information, or to be added to our circulation list please email firstname.lastname@example.org
