*Online* West Midlands Presents…Jason Bell – Fiduciary Duties for Interpreters

14th May 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


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.

Please RSVP to receive the Zoom link, which will be sent nearer the date.

We look forward to seeing you on 14th May at 7pm,
Liz, Ruth, Selina and Vicki
