The Australian Association of Interpreters and Translators (AUSIT) QLD is organising a free training opportunity for translators and interpreters about the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme).

NDIS logo

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is starting in Queensland. The NDIS is a new way of supporting people with a disability. Interpreters are often booked on the phone and onsite to assist. This workshop will provide a briefing to interpreters and translators regarding what they need to know in order to best support clients of the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency).

Expand your knowledge about:

  • Disability and disability rights
  • What is the NDIA, the NDIS and who is it for?
  • When and why might an interpreter be engaged in the NDIS process?
  • How can an interpreter best prepare for NDIS related sessions and calls?
  • This will count as 10 points towards your professional development.
