“My confidence was at zero when a friend of mine told me about the Back to Work course. I signed up and soon realised I wasn’t the only mum who’d stayed at home for a long time and who was struggling to find a job. Jane Knight, our tutor, has so much experience as a careers coach and you get the feeling she can really “see” you. The course helped me get my current role. Now I feel like I’m a complete person, not just mummy, cleaner, cook… I feel like “me” again.”
