ASL Educational Interpreter Job Responsibilities
The primary job responsibility of educational sign language interpreter jobs is to translate spoken word into American Sign Language. To do so, it is important that a sign language interpreter understands the subject matter of what is being discussed. This ensures a more accurate translation. ASL educational interpreter jobs in the school setting typically require an interpreter to work one-on-one with students who are deaf and hard of hearing and even utilize technology to provide interpretation remotely.
Educational ASL Interpreter Job Requirements
Most educational ASL interpreter jobs require applicants to have some form of vocational training or a degree, and some colleges offer sign language programs specifically. The specific certification requirements for educational sign language interpreter jobs typically vary by employer and are not always required. However, certifications are offered by the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) and American Translators Association.
Educational Sign Language Interpreter Job Salary & Outlook
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of interpreters and translators is projected to grow by 23.7% from 2020 to 2030. The average ASL educational interpreter job salary depends on the setting and state of the role, as well as the level of experience and education of the interpreter. School districts with a larger caseload will typically offer higher educational ASL interpreter job salaries.
