Review of the National Occupational Standards (NOS) in Interpreting

The retained consultants submitted a report and final draft of the revised NOS to the Steering Group on 3 August, which contained a number of amendments following the stakeholder consultation in July. The Steering Group has reviewed and signed off the final draft which has now been submitted to the UK NOS panel for approval.

Staff update

We welcome Kate Price back from maternity leave on 9 October in the role of Registration Service Manager. The Director and the NRCPD Board would like to thank Heidi Doyle for her excellent work in covering the role over the past year.
