I always wanted to start learning #signlanguage. I thought it will help me to fully engage in some situations, and use a universal language to understand deaf people and others with hearing loss. Knowing how to use different languages can sometimes have a great benefit when it comes to helping people in different contexts, and specific situations, but also expressing ourselves etc.When Endava #DiversityandInclusion Forum informed us about the Endava Signs Programme and their cooperation with terptree in organizing the #InternationalSignLanguage Course, I knew it was the perfect time to start #learning! I enjoyed every single minute of our Basic Workplace International Sign Language course with our amazing educator Gavin Lilley from the UK and terptree! Also, I was I was blown away when I realized how this course was aligned with improving communication skills too, including active listening 🤩.

I can’t speak highly enough of the staff within Terptree. Organisations aspire to offer the personal touch and rarely achieve this. I can hand on heart say that Terptree nail this and then some! Terptree offer a supreme service and are fair.

I have undertaken many of the webinars that Terptree have organised. These have been on a good mix of topics and produced at a high standard. Making these webinars available to buy as a recording is just one way that Terptree have shown their commitment to interpreters and their busy lives; making their resources freely available during the pandemic, another. Highly recommend.

I am a self-employed BSL Interpreter and therefore choose whom i provide my services. Terptree are one of my top agencies to work for. They are professional yet personable and always pay on time, quite often early! If I have had any concerns i feel listened to and hear. They provide great cpd opportunities too and clearly can empathise from both consumer and service provider perspective. I would recommend them highly.

I just started as a freelancer with Terptree. So far I have found them a great agency to work for - booking staff really friendly and responsive, they do their best to get access to online links and prep for remote interpreting (much better than some agencies I have worked for). Their portal is easy to operate and they respect my fee structure. They seem to really value their interpreters. I am very happy to be working with them.They also provided interpreters in general with lots of free CPD during the pandemic, which has been so helpful and supportive during a difficult time. Much appreciated.

My experience working with Terptree as a freelancer has been nothing but positive, and I would recommend them to others wholeheartedly. It is wonderful to be treated with such value and respect in an industry where this isn't always the case. I feel their ethos and desire to consistently provide a high quality service is achieved on a daily basis. I hope to continue working with Terptree well into the future and thank them for their support of both trainee and fully qualified interpreters.
