Language Support

In-Trans

In-Trans is a project established in 2003 to support individuals accessing NHS Grampian health services. Since then, the service has developed and expanded its activity, now serving a wide range of sectors and organisations, including Oil & Gas companies, third sector organisations, and private individuals.

We recognise the importance of supporting those whose first language is not English and helping people to overcome language barriers. In-Trans has a team of over 160 interpreters and translators who cover 54 different languages.

We believe firmly in delivering the highest quality of service and dealing with our clients in a professional and transparent way.

We aim to be inclusive and appreciate the values of people from every community, experiences, and skills that they bring towards innovation and improvement in the community.

We play an active role, as part of GREC, to support and celebrate diversity.

Language Café (free weekly sessions by video chat)
Thursdays 10:30 am – Noon

For anyone who would like to chat and practice their English skills while interacting with diverse cultures and meeting new friends. Every week we pick a different topic of conversation, invite guest speakers or use language games to build confidence in speaking and interacting in a relaxed environment.

Language Works (free weekly sessions by video chat)
Tuesdays 7:30 – 9:00 pm

This project aims to support anyone looking to build their confidence speaking English whilst learning about the world of work. We meet every week to chat and learn about diverse subjects such as CVs, interviews and recruitment, while offering relevant information about work related topics. We also invite guest speakers and develop activities to raise people’s awareness of how to improve their employability.

ESOL for Work (free sessions by video chat)

Short courses in English as a second language with a focus on improving general understanding and language skills for employment. Students who are already attending other ESOL courses elsewhere can greatly benefit from this opportunity to access relevant information about working in the UK, whilst practicing and improving their existing language skills.
