AIIC Training: Consecutive advanced refresher Permalink

Helen Campbell will lead a workshop in York (UK) for professional interpreters who want to improve their consecutive interpreting skills.

This 2.5 day course targets professional conference interpreters who are comfortable with long consecutive (eg. +/- 5 mins) but want to work on their note-taking, confidence, presentation skills and consecutive from difficult speeches. Helen will share a variety of strategies to help make you feel more at ease with your next consecutive assignment.

The course is designed both as a follow-up to previous AIIC consecutive refreshers AND as a stand-alone course for interpreters at the appropriate level.

This unique annual CPD course for conference interpreters offers a student-teacher ratio not exceeding 2.5:1. Instruction is centred on training in simultaneous interpretation from numerous challenging contemporary video sources, speeches delivered by teaching faculty, and guest speakers. General, group and individual performance evaluation is extensive, tailored and detailed.

The CCIC’s 27 students will work approximately 5 hours per day in state-of-the-art 2-person ISO booths equipped with screens. A wide range of technical and general subjects (economy, geopolitics, defence, environment, philosophy, history, etc.) will be briefed under authentic conference conditions, including formal UN-format mock meetings. Several in-depth and specialised language breakout sessions, concentrating on a particular mode of interpretation and/or language pair, are also featured. 

In addition to the core curriculum, daily specialised modules in a variety of fields (consecutive techniques, B-language strategies, preparation and use of texts, meeting terminology and practice, booth and stress management, marketing and negotiation, chuchotage, interpreting literature, etc.) and briefings on AIIC and the profession, are provided. Practical exercises in ‘chuchotage’ are also featured, using real-life scenarios.

We have negotiated advantageous room rates both at the Hilton Cambridge City Centre hotel venue and at nearby Christ’s College.

Course languages are: English, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish, according to demand, and tuition is tailored to cover the language pairs desired by students. The language of general instruction is English.
