Regional Queensland Training Opportunity

Auslan Connections is the largest Not for Profit interpreting service in Queensland and we are committed to reinvesting into our Deaf community and supporting and up skilling interpreters.

We have an exciting training opportunity for regional para-professional interpreters to visit Brisbane and work with a variety of interpreters and Deaf clients over the course of a week.  This opportunity aims to support our regional para-professionals and expose them to a broad range of interpreting contexts whilst being supported by a team of experienced interpreters.

Auslan Connections will provide the successful applicants:

• Return flights to Brisbane
• One weeks accommodation
• Transport, and
• $500 income

There is at least one sponsorship opportunity available and para-professional interpreters based in regional centres around Queensland are encouraged to apply.  The successful applicants for this Regional Interpreter Training are to be available over the September school holidays. They will be expected to write a story about their experience and be willing to have their photo and story published.

If you are interested in this unique opportunity please complete the application form below.   All applications will be assessed on merit and all applicants will be notified by email on the 21st August 2015 to allow the successful applicants enough time to make arrangements.

Applications are due by 5pm, 17th August 2015.
