Successful Mums Career Academy has extensive experience of helping a broad range of referral partners to support their customers and the challenges they face on the journey back to work.

Having won the ERSA Partner of The Year, amongst other awards, we’re proud to have collaborated with hundreds of referral partners across London and Kent – including job centres, housing associations, family liaison services, councils and LEPs – to help thousands of mums with their careers.

“Successful Mums Career Academy were able to pitch the training just right to encourage, yet be realistic, about the next steps for the parents in Holloway at the time. Providing ideas for self-employment along with the correct steps to take, the group were given hope and a clear process about guide what to do in preparation for their release plans. Many of the women still talk about the training and how positive it made them feel.”

“We partnered with Successful Mums Career Academy as we wanted to tap into their talent-pool of women that had been through the back to work course. We were very impressed with the calibre of CVs this generated. This resulted in us employing our very own Successful Mum. I would recommend connecting with Successful Mums; they are doing great work supporting women back to work.”
