Interpreter Education Program (IEP)November 19, 2014
Posting a letter from John Baliza of DLS-CSB School of Deaf Education and Applied Studies addressed to sign language interpreters:
Greetings fellow sign language interpreters!
We at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde is in the process of establishing an Interpreter Education Program (IEP), and is seeking input from working interpreters all over the Philippines by participating in this short email survey. We are assessing our current situation of sign language interpreting, and your participation in this survey will be very much appreciated.
We intend to start our pilot program by next year and we will be calling on working interpreters to commit two semesters to train on Ethics, Wellness and Skills Development. We are asking current interpreters to register for this course because this will not only be a great training opportunity, but also a means to collaborate and further improve our interpreting profession as a whole. Hopefully people who wish to be involved in our pilot program will become future leaders and educators for the sign language interpreting community in the Philippines.
For inquiries about the interpreting program and/or in sending your reply to our survey, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Thank you and we are looking forward to your response.
