Kathryn Shaw
Registered British Sign Language Interpreter

Kate initially started learning British Sign Language when she was 16 because she wanted to be a teacher… however she graduated from the University of Wolverhampton in 2014 with a degree in Interpreting (BSL/ English), and then completed her Post Graduate Diploma in BSL/ English Interpreting and Translation from the University of Central Lancashire in 2017. 

Kate joined COS in 2016 as a Trainee Interpreter (TSLI) and is now working as a Registered Sign Language Interpreter (RSLI) across North and Mid Wales. She loves the variety that comes with the job and enjoys the challenges that come along with it too.

Kate is often seen in COS video's providing information through BSL.

Outside of work Kate enjoys wearing polka dots and stripes!
