TLS launches personal safety training for interpreters

Last month, TLS hosted a breakaway training session for our British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters who work at Springfield Hospital. The breakaway course was designed to help interpreters learn how to remove themselves from potential harm. The training provided simple, effective skills and knowledge that will help interpreters understand how to safely disengage themselves from aggressive situations.

We are committed to the continuous professional development of our interpreters, with many training events taking place throughout the year.
