About the course trainer, Helen Ryan:

I completed my training at the Centre for Deaf Studies at Bristol University from 2002 to 2005.

I have considerable experience of working with children and families, within health and social care, quasi-legal settings, local government, mental health, therapeutic settings and higher education. Much of my work has been with deaf people from overseas who are developing their BSL fluency. Working extensively within this sector has expanded and developed my understanding of health care systems and government structures.
Since 2008 I have worked as a video interpreter and supervisor for SignVideo. I’ve had significant experience of co-ordination and the development of interpreting services, recruitment of interpreters, developing service provision policy and providing peer supervision to video interpreters.

I co-authored ASLI’s Video Interpreting Best Practice Standards guidelines and more recently, I co-authored a journal chapter, which is due to be published in the New Year.
