CALD 1+4 - Cultural Competency & Working with Interpreters

CALD 1+4 - Cultural Competency & Working with Interpreters

A pre-requisite to other CALD courses. This course is a combination of the two courses: CALD 1 Culture and Cultural Competency and CALD 4 Working with Interpreters.

This course will help learners develop skills in cultural competency; become aware of how assumptions, interpretations, and judgments impact on how we communicate; and gain practical knowledge and skills to work with interpreters effectively when working CALD patients/clients during consultations.

With the requirement for stricter social distancing, we are now offering REMOTE TRAINING OPTIONS via zoom, on top of the current range of e-learning culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) e-learning (online) courses. 

We used zoom features in our remote zoom training to keep participants engaged, eg:

  • breakout rooms for small group discussions
  • whiteboard for recording discussions within the wider group
  • chat-box to engage learners with specific activities
  • multi-media to enhance teaching points.
