My life has turned a corner

Arwa engaged with the SWEET programme via Masbro Community Centre. She needed help in finding volunteering, improving English and finding out about higher education in the UK. While on the project she completed various activities such as volunteering for Older People service, CV writing and job search sessions. She also got help in researching MA courses and funding, scholarships and writing a personal statement, preparing for and funding ILETS exam and been supported with organising nursery for her child. Arwa was accepted to study part time MA in translation at London Metropolitan University and has already completed first year.


My dream of studying translation in the UK came true and my life has turned a corner. After escaping the war in Syria I’m safe in the UK with my family and the future looks bright. I can't express the amount of joy I get from learning. It is fabulous!!!

"Thank you! You helped me to find the information I needed when I was lost in my research, you pushed me and encouraged me to challenge myself and think long term.  

It has paid off as I have done several work experiences by now so I know what I’d like to do. What’s even more important is that I have a robust plan of how to achieve it! ”

“After few years at home I didn’t have any confidence and didn’t know how to go about looking for a job. Luckily, I found out about Into Work Club at Masbro where I learned how to update my CV and got help with job applications.

I feel much more confident now and have skills to take charge of my return to work. I am sure I’ll be starting a new job soon!”

“I’m so happy I’ve found a job working in a local school. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my adviser, helping me to prepare and search for jobs, organise work experience and get the right qualifications.

She put me in touch with Benefit Advice, ensuring my job didn’t affect my benefits, and Smart Works who gave me lovely free interview clothes.”
