Apply now to join the online ReLaunch Course for professional women on a career break, starting in January 2021! ReLaunch will help you to understand the value of your strengths, build confidence, clarify your professional goals and create an action plan for next steps.
Following a career break, figuring out what you want to do, breaking barriers to re-entry and building confidence can be challenging. Our mission is to empower professional women who have had a career break (from 2 months to 15+ years) to feel confident to start their next chapter. The course is led by experienced facilitators and held in small groups of 6 women, so participants not only finish with a plan but with a new support network too.
*Please note that the ReLaunch is a course for women on a career break, not a returnship.
Since completing ReLaunch, participants have gained full or part-time employment, started their own businesses, changed careers, engaged with skilled volunteering or gone on to further education.

"ReLaunch has been a game-changer! The support and encouragement of the facilitator Caroline and my ReLaunch group has helped me to believe in myself and take my next steps with confidence." (Luciana, Nov. 2020 ReLaunch participant)

96% of participants reported that, as a result of participating in ReLaunch, they felt motivated and supported to take their next steps after a career break
After being away from the workforce, Clare took part in ReLaunch as she was looking for clarity on the kind of work which would suit her:
“After a 7-year career break to raise my children, I wanted to obtain a fulfilling role which suited me, but which also gave me time to care for my family. I took part in ReLaunch because I was ready for my next chapter and needed clarity and support to move forward. ReLaunch gave me the tools I needed – to understand my strengths and what kind of work I really enjoy doing. ReLaunch also helped me to create a plan to take concrete steps towards realising my career goals. The support and encouragement which I received from the women in my group and the ReLaunch coaches was fantastic!
ReLaunch is amazingly good value for money – because of taking part in the course, I felt motivated and more confident to apply for jobs. Subsequently I successfully obtained my current role as Project Support Officer with the Home Office. There can be challenges in returning to work after a career break, however overall, it has been a very rewarding experience for me. I really enjoy the intellectual challenge of my role, meeting incredibly passionate people dedicated to public service and being part of a vital team. Over the past few months, I have been able to work remotely from home, which has given me a positive focus in these uncertain times.
I’m glad that I took part in ReLaunch, as it set me on the right path to enjoy the next stage of my career. If you are thinking about your next steps after taking time out, ReLaunch is a great way to kickstart your career!”
