Roevin shares its experience of the Graduate Apprenticeship Scheme at the ATC Conference

Birmingham, UK – September 2007

Liz Athey from Roevin Translation Services, a leading language translation agency with a global network of translation experts, was invited by the Association of Translation Companies to share Roevin’s experience of the pilot Graduate Apprenticeship Scheme at this year’s annual conference in London on 20th September 2007.
Liz Athey, Operations Manager and Natasha Williams, a Graduate Apprentice from Aston University, provided perspectives of the Scheme from a host company and student. The Graduate Apprenticeship Scheme aims to offer MA students in Translation Studies a high quality structured work placement within a professional translation organisation. Natasha Williams spent three weeks with Roevin and commented that “the placement gave me invaluable experience into many different aspects of the translation industry.”
Liz Athey, Operations Manager, said “the falling numbers of students studying languages at school and university will lead to a critical skills shortage if not addressed and so it’s important that translation companies do all they can to encourage careers in the language business”.
