Opportunities for translators: schools training programme

The Stephen Spender Trust and Free Word offer a unique training programme for translators who are keen to gain experience of working in a school environment, sharing translation skills with young people.

Are you fluent in English and at least one other language and interested in the process of translation? Would you be keen to introduce young people to some of the skills involved and to communicate your enthusiasm in a classroom environment?

Translators in Schools is a training programme that aims to widen the pool of translators with the skills to work in schools.

A day of workshops covering translation activities, lesson planning and classroom management will be held on Tuesday 26 November 2013 at the Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, London EC1. The deadline for applications is Monday 14 October and applicants will be informed whether they have been successful by Friday 18 October. 

Participants will be eligible to apply for a longer-term training programme involving a workshop with schoolchildren and ongoing mentoring to support them in developing their own sessions and links with schools. 

Please visit the Stephen Spender Trust website for more information and details of how to apply. 

Translators in Schools is administered by the Stephen Spender Trust, curated by Sarah Ardizzone and Sam Holmes, and hosted by the Free Word Centre.
