What is it?
Our specially tailored group DPSI preparation course is an 8-week course with additional FREE sessions with a Language Specialist.
At its’ core is a bundle of 8 focused sessions based around interpreting techniques (consecutive interpreting, simultaneous interpreting, sight translation, and draft written translation) and specialisms (police, court, prison & probation, and immigration) which are presented remotely by a highly skilled and qualified tutor to a small group of no more than 6 learners, once per week for 8 consecutive weeks. They consist of:
- informative material
- supporting documents and forms
- key terminology
- the most important statements/phrases you will need to be familiar with
The specialism sessions are followed by 2 FREE sessions with a qualified and experienced language specialist, with whom you will complete:
- role plays in DPSI-specific specialisms
- a review of glossaries
- verification of your understanding and interpretation of the key statements/phrases
- feedback on your performance of interpreting/translation of excerpts during tutor sessions.
In addition, you will have access to:
- downloadable e-books to support your learning and beyond
- a bundle of 10 past papers for Unit 1, Unit 3 and Unit 5 of the DPSI exam
- the scoring matrix for the DPSI exam, so you know what you will be assessed on when the time comes
Why do you need it?
Isn’t it much more appealing to be led through the preparation process by someone with a proven, successful tried-and-tested methodology? You need a group DPSI preparation course to support you in preparing for the DPSI exam in order to gain confidence in your own preparation capabilities and to increase your chances of passing the DPSI exam on the first attempt. Working as part of a team will make you feel comfortable in asking questions and sharing knowledge, yet the small size of the group will make sure that you never feel overlooked.
What will it avoid?
Do you really want to be wading through endless online resources, not knowing what is worthwhile and what’s a waste of time? By purchasing this course, you will avoid the uncertainty of not knowing whether you have all the necessary information and correct terminology in order to successfully pass the DPSI exam. You will also avoid dealing with stress over the quality of your exam preparation. Finally, you will not have to waste money on unnecessary exam re-sits, which may happen if you are under-prepared.
What will it help with?
The group DPSI preparation course will help provide you with the materials, knowledge and glossary needed for a pass mark in the DPSI exam – all in a structured and coherent manner. In addition, the language support sessions will help perfect your use of terminology, provide guidance on any unclear areas and enable you to get involved in role plays (utilising the consecutive and simultaneous interpreting techniques). You will be able to look forward to the DPSI exam, rather than dreading it, knowing you’ve done your absolute maximum in your preparations. The wealth of knowledge provided by the tutor, coupled with 1 to 1 sessions with the language specialist and the debates and discussions within the group will ensure you enter the DPSI exam clear-headed, focused and full of certainty.
