CABSdeafConnectEd is committed to supporting interpreters working in the Vocational Education and Training sector.

Our CABS mentoring and skill development program has had a great start with our three mentees recently matched with an experienced mentor for the year ahead. Our mentees will also be working with Julie Judd on an individual development plan for 2014 to further build on their skills. We look forward to sharing their experience as the year progresses.

Our interpreter workshops for 2014 will kick off with a two-part introduction to Demand Control Schema led by Lori Whynot, an experienced interpreter and interpreter trainer. The introductory sessions will be held 10:00 – 12:00 Saturday 3 May and 10:00 – 12:00 Saturday 10 May. Participants will then have the opportunity to join an ongoing supervision group to practice the skills they have learned. More details will be provided shortly but in the meantime, please email us if you are interested in attending.

Additional workshops will be advertised to CABS interpreters in our weekly email update and on this site.
