Kirsten McCarthy - Internal Verifier
I have been working as a Registered Sign Language Interpreter for over 20 years, with experience as an employed interpreter in local and national agencies and as a freelancer. I am an ASLI trained mentor as well as a qualified assessor, supervisor and more recently IQA.
I have delivered interpreter training courses, with a particular focus on our English language skills, as I feel these are sometimes ignored in favour of BSL skills. The majority of my interpreting work is in the social care domain, as I enjoy the close working relationships this brings.
