In 2014 I co-founded 360 Supervision with Cathy Davey, a Psychotherapist, to design and deliver a Diploma in Supervision for Sign Language Interpreters.I trained as a Supervisor with therapists and was struck by how much the knowledge and skills they gained during their core training provided them with the skill set necessary in the role as a Supervisor. My motivation for developing a bespoke Diploma in Supervision for Sign Language Interpreters was to deliver training that included skills vital to the role of a supervisor that are not part of our interpreter training. The course is now open to allied professionals and I deliver this alongside Kate McAndrew a psychotherapist with input from previous students on the Diploma.
The course is run bi-annually and our next course starts May 2021. We are currently exploring funding options to ensure that deaf people can access the following course in 2023.
