    Our staff have been calling children in their classes weekly since lockdown began – they have been able to chat to children in the language they feel most comfortable in and make contact with parents too. It has transformed our capacity to communicate with all our school community, with particular impact on our most vulnerable EAL parents, including our Syrian refugee families.

    We have had nothing but an excellent service from INTRAN. They have always provided us with an interpreter when requested, and they have always been punctual, flexible and highly professional, even when discussing some very delicate matters. I would highly recommend them.

    Using interpreting services is an invaluable part of our work with the Afghan and Syrian refugee resettlement programmes. To facilitate children’s educational placements, we need to translate important admissions documents and policies to parents, find out any essential health/SEN issues and allow parents to ask questions or express concerns. Access to INTRAN is quick and easy, and schools are always so grateful that they will be able to ensure effective communication with parents and carers.

    I have used INTRAN via phone and in person and have found both services to be professional and efficient. During safeguarding meetings, INTRAN interpreters have remained calm and enabled the process to continue without interrupting the flow of discussion. Until I worked with INTRAN, I hadn’t used an interpreting service. I was very pleasantly put at ease and could concentrate more fully on the job at hand.
