ReLaunch course in September 2020 for Women on a Career Break
Apply now to join the online ReLaunch Course for professional women on a career break, starting on the 15th of September 2020! 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 plus years) to feel confident to start their next chapter. The course is led by experienced facilitators and held in small groups of 6-8 women, so participants not only finish with a plan but with a new support network too.
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.

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!”
Annabel, who had been away from the workforce for many years to raise her family, participated in ReLaunch as she wanted to revaluate her life and next steps. She says:
“ReLaunch made me set aside time to really think about my strengths and weaknesses, what was important to me and how that could translate into a new pathway going forward. Through Link UP London’s team, I became engaged in a skilled volunteering project with the Katherine Low Settlement, the much-loved Battersea Charity that supports the local community in a variety of ways. When the volunteer project came to an end, I was offered a paid role within KLS as their Community Partnerships Manager. In these unprecedented times I couldn’t be busier or more fulfilled. I fully believe ReLaunch made all this possible; without it I would still be considering my options without the confidence to press forward as it’s so easy to procrastinate. I encourage you to take the plunge and see where ReLaunch takes you!”
