TLS partners offer training to keep our interpreters at the top of their game

As part of TLS’s commitment to ongoing development and excellence, psychiatrist Dr Sarkis Garjarian, from the NHS North East London Foundation Trust, gave 150 of our freelance interpreters a tailored training course on ‘Working as an Interpreter with Clinical Staff’.

The training combined customer feedback points with Dr Garjarian’s expertise in the field, examining how interpreters could incorporate this feedback and ensure that customers and service users get the most from their bookings.


Don’t forget: as a customer, you are invited to join our free webinar training on how to get the most from interpreters. The one-off session lasts for 30 minutes and is held on a Wednesday morning, once a month. Find out more and book your place by emailing

Due to the success of our previous free 'Introduction to TLS Services' virtual training sessions, we are now offering them regularly, on the last Wednesday of every month throughout 2022.

The training explains all the various types of interpreting available, and which services are best suited to different contexts. We will look in detail at how and when to book an interpreter, the best practice for working alongside interpreters and provide an opportunity to ask any questions with a member of our team. Participants can also get a certificate of attendance once they have completed the training along with a TLS Training Information Pack.

The virtual training takes just half an hour and you can sign up via our Eventbrite here.
