The Return to Work programme is specifically designed for individuals looking to re-enter the workforce after a multi-year career break; for example, as an at-home parent or carer. This course aims to provide this cohort with the opportunity to up-skill, to boost confidence and will provide a bridge back to high-calibre work for skilled professionals.
A key focus of this course will be on participants’ transferable skills including time management, communications, problem-solving, delegation, resilience and other interpersonal skills, and confidence around those skills. Participants will also consider Budget Management & Project Management as part of their core skills refresh.
The changing nature and pace of work is a real concern for this cohort so participants will explore in detail how the world of work has evolved in recent years and how this influences different professions and roles, with a focus on changes in technology in the module entitled “Working in a Digital World.”
A characteristic of this cohort, according to industry engagement, is not knowing where to start. This course includes a dedicated module on job-readiness to provide a clear route back into the workplace, focusing on job search strategy and including a suite of careers motivation, self-confidence and job ready workshops. Industry guest speakers from Dell, among others, will feature throughout to offer a range of advice, support and inspiration to the group.
Assessment will be via a combination of online assignments & skills demos which will focus on the practical application of course learnings to the workplace environment.
