The Teaching Team
SLI is the most experienced provider of postgraduate-level programmes for BSL-English interpreters in the UK. In 1997 it designed the UCLan Postgraduate Diploma in English/BSL Interpreting and Translation and taught the programme until it was replaced by the SLI Advanced Diploma in 2013. In 2003 SLI designed the MA in Interpreting: BSL-English for the University of Leeds and its Director, Peter Llewellyn-Jones, acted as the Programme Director from 2003 to 2012.
All the SLI interpreting tutors are experienced postgraduate-level university teachers as well as qualified, experienced interpreting practitioners. Between them they have experience and expertise in virtually all interpreting domains. SLI’s Deaf tutors are all regular users of interpreting services, experienced at assessing and giving positive, constructive feedback at postgraduate level and have a very good understanding of the interpreting process.
