This course (taken with the preceding Language and Culture Acquisition course) is designed to give the necessary training for those taking up a mentored internship field assignment with SIL. This initial assignment would be up to two years duration and may be undertaken as the first phase of a longer term involvement.
Assignment Related Training aims to equip participants with the knowledge, skills and attitudes they require to contribute to such a field language project and our hope is that by the end of the course, participants will have accomplished some work in all target areas and have developed the confidence to embark competently on the adventure of field work.
The usual entry requirements for a Redcliffe College postgraduate level course apply.
Assignment Related Training is taught in partnership with Wycliffe Bible Translators and SIL International.
Each is comprised of a unique core component plus a number of shared components that are common to each track. Further details of the unique core components to each track can be found by following the links below.
There is also a two and half day long seminar in the middle of the course, entitled Living in Christ, which can be optional for those who are not members of Wycliffe organisations.
The 'objectives' tab outines the objectives of the shared components.
Plus one of the following tracks (see separate Course Objectives statements):
