Auslan Stage Left has been experiencing an unprecedented demand for interpreted theatre over the last two years. In order to provide the best possible experience for Deaf audiences, Auslan Stage Left believes that training interpreters and Deaf consultants alike, is crucial.

Our trainers are hand selected from the most qualified interpreters and Deaf consultants in our industry and the content, knowledge and experience gained through our training is invaluable.

We are proud of the workshops we have offered recently and we are pleased to announce that we are currently working on a series of training programs that will be offered to interpreters throughout Australia and New Zealand in the coming months. 

Thank you for your patience, and please continue to send us your expressions of interest or suggestions for areas of training so that we can keep you on file for future productions and workshops.
