*Online* West Midlands Presents…Jason Bell – Fiduciary Duties for Interpreters
14th May 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
West Midlands Presents…is extremely pleased to welcome Jason Bell to present on the fascinating topic of fiduciary duty; must interpreters act completely in the best interests of their clients?
Jason is a freelance BSL/English Interpreter and Director of iNet Interpreting Ltd, the UK’s first interpreting co-operative formed in 2011. A fully qualified BSL/English interpreter who has worked in the field of Deafness for over 23 years. He qualified through the postgraduate route gaining the PGdip in BSL/English interpreting via SLI/UCLAN in 2009. Jason initially trained and qualified as a Social Worker gaining the DipSW in 1996. He has an MA in Ethics from Keele University and lectured on ethics and professionalism on the postgraduate diploma at SLI/UCLAN for 10 years. He was also a guest lecturer on the MA in BSL/English interpreting at the University of Leeds. He is currently chair of RBSLI, the Regulatory Body for Sign Language Interpreters and Translators.
Fidelity in interpreting has been a key feature of the work of interpreters and translators for over two thousand years but how does this affect the notion of impartiality and our relationship with the interlocutors in a post Role Space world? Do interpreters have a higher duty of care than previously thought? Jason discusses these questions in this excellent one hour workshop.
This is a free event for ASLI members only. This event will not be recorded.
This one hour session, equalling one CPD points, will be delivered in spoken English – please let us know if you require a BSL/English interpreter or have any other additional access requirements.
