The work on SMIIM project continues

SMIIM LogoThe work on project Skills to Maximise Inclusion through Interpreting and Mediation (SMIIM) continues.

Over a period of two years (2017-2019), Community Action Dacorum will lead a partnership involving NGOs and other non-profit organisations in six European countries, utilising the partners' skills to produce training materials to support interpreters who find themselves at the forefront of problems involving social isolation among migrants.


The project will improve training provision for learners in the field of Interpreting and Cultural Mediation. It will start with indepth research and will be followed by the creation of a web portal with training materials, videos and a speech repository to enable learners to practice their speech and pronunciation with their peer learners. A manual and two training activities will complement the portal, and a badge system will be created to recognise learner achievement.

Lastly, the sustainability and legacy of the project is a priority, and forward planning will ensure that communication and dissemination plans create awareness of the project and the materials available.
