I am Fully Registered!
I am delighted to report that the restrictions to my interpreting practice, due to my career break, are now lifted, having been evaluated and approved by an A1 Assessor. I can't express how delighted I am not to have to keep explaining what that meant.
A huge thanks to everybody who has helped - the Deaf people who have provided me with opportunities and given freely of their time, the hearing people who have also allowed me to film, and the interpreters who have variously provided guidance and advice over the last couple of months. I'm reluctant to name people online, but you know who you are.
