Lina Funds her Purpose

A woman from Barrow-in-Furness says the Building Better Opportunities Getting Cumbria to Work project (BBO GCtW) has helped her find a purpose and put a road map in place to achieve her career goals. Lina Harb Tyson said she had felt 'a bit lost' after moving to the United Kingdom from Lebanon and having a new baby. But BBO GCtW had offered her invaluable advice and support and she was now hoping to find paid work and also set up her own interpreting business.

"I wanted to take a Level 3 course in Community Interpreting and I discussed it with BBO GCtW and they funded the course. I have passed all the assignments and assessments up to this point. They have also funded me to take a Level 6 Diploma in Public Service Interpreting course. I am planning to set up my own business doing remote freelance interpreting because in Barrow there are not enough Arabic speakers who need interpreting services. However, working remotely would allow me to also access people all over

the country."
