The campaign group Professional Interpreters for Justice (PI4J) is talking with the government with the intention of persuading them of the merits of developing a viable alternative to the Framework Agreement and is in active discussion on these issues. There has never been a more important time to discuss Quality, and this seminar is the opportunity for you to contribute to the debate or update yourself with information on developments.
