Our Workshops

Across our recent workshop series, 85% of students rated the workshop content 8/10 or above.

Our workshop selection for your school will reflect your students’ needs, their interests and linguistic backgrounds. A one-off workshop offers a taster. Bespoke series of three to five workshops offer students in-depth engagement with selected themes, as well the opportunity to explore different translation techniques and discover art and literature from different geographical and socio-cultural contexts. See our sample series below for more information.
