The community interpreter is becoming increasingly more important particularly in communities which are linguistically diverse. The community interpreter acts as a bridge between these communities and public services enabling people to access services and situations which might otherwise be out of reach.This qualification enables learners who are speakers of other languages to develop the underpinning skills and language to go on to train as community interpreters at Level 3 and 4.
