Onsite interpreting arrangements during lockdown
In general onsite interpreters will not be able to go onto school grounds during the lockdown. Other interpreting arrangements will continue to be available. Please see Telephone interpreting and Online interpreting for more information.
Schools can access onsite interpreters through local providers. Depending on the length of the interpreting assignment, schools may need to get prior approval for funding.
Assignments of 3 hours or less
If on-site interpreting assignments are 3 hours or less and meet the interpreting guidelines, schools should book their interpreting assignments directly with their chosen service provider and do not need to get prior approval.
Assignments of over 3 hours
For assignments of more than three hours, schools must obtain prior approval for funding.
