In 2010 translation & interpreting agency founder Eileen Enos decided to launch training courses so that capable linguists could get more work, and better paid work.
Having run her agency, Talking Heads, since 1999, she could see that clients were regularly requesting Interpreters who held a specific qualification or who had studied the subject matter. As professional providers of language services she understood the 'provision' part of the process and knew that capable linguists existed, but needed to provide linguists who had the appropriate training and / or qualifications.
The 'dual-power' of professional agency experience combined with working with fantastic teachers and course-writers has resulted in us providing excellent online courses with award-winning results and many, many happy customers. Read Student Feedback here.
We feel that providing our courses online rather than in a classroom setting enables more people to take advantage of our award-winning courses, including linguists from all over the world who wish to gain a coveted UK education. It's also much more flexible for you - it fits around your schedule and family life.
