Many professional women are apprehensive about returning to the workplace after a career break. A loss of confidence, loss of flexibility and worries about relevance of skill-sets are often cited as common reasons for women to postpone or avoid seeking a return to paid employment. This course has been designed to give women the skills to build confidence and learn practical skills and techniques to help their job search and subsequent re-entry to the workplace.
The course will offer a small group learning opportunity for women to explore the mechanics of returning to work alongside some reflective activities to plan for career progression into the future. A key element of this programme will be the opportunity to join the food industry for a short-term work placement in order to gain and current experience in the sector. Our sectoral specificity allows Food Industry Training Unit at UCC to offer a bespoke programme designed for the needs of the agri-food sector.
