Are you ready for a new chapter in 2020? Join our ReLaunch Course for women on a career break in January!

Postby Volunteerlink » Thu Jan 09, 2020 11:37 am

  • Are you feeling stuck or unsure of your next steps after a career break?
  • Do you want fulfilling and flexible work so that you have time for your family or other priorities?
  • Would you like to pivot career or start your own business?  
Our 4-part ReLaunch Course at the Battersea Arts Centre, helps women, like you, to understand the value of your strengths, reignite your confidence, clarify your goals and create a plan for your next steps.
 
Our ReLaunch course was launched in January 2018, and has already helped dozens of women, including Emily, a Wandsworth resident. 

Emily 
feels fortunate that she was able to take a 14-year career break to raise her children. In those years, she also volunteered in her community, as well as being the head of the PTA at her children’s school. Emily says: When my term as Head of the PTA ended, I wanted to continue being busy – preferably in a paid role! - but I wasn’t sure exactly how to go about it or what my strengths were after such a long break. Luckily I heard about the ReLaunch course at just the right time.” Through the 4-part ReLaunch course, Emily was able to assess her strengths and the types of roles that would work best for her. She is now the Alumni & Events Manager at a local independent school, and credits ReLaunch with helping her get this job, saying: “I would not have pursued this role with the same confidence and assertive attitude without ReLaunch. It is honestly one of the best things I’ve ever done!” Emily has thrived in her busy role and enjoyed gaining new skills such as database management and how to use social media as a work tool – she says if she can do it, anyone can!

Get in touch now to take advantage of our Early Bird price and join our ReLaunch course starting on the 21st of January. Places are limited. To book your spot, email: ReLaunch@linkuplondon.org

Dates:  21st January and continuing on 28th January, 4th February and 11th February
Time:   9:30 – 13:15
Venue: Battersea Arts Centre, Scratch Hub, SW11 5TN
Early Bird price: £200 for the course (full price is £250)

Interested but can’t make January? Don’t worry, we have other sessions planned. Get in touch with Heather (heather@linkuplondon.org) to learn about future dates.

 
Upon completion of the course, participants benefit from continuing support in the form of regular meet-ups with your ReLaunch cohort, our motivational newsletters and events, mentoring opportunities and our complimentary weekly coaching surgery for ReLaunchees. Our ReLaunchees can also choose to get involved with Link UP London’ skilled-volunteering projects, which are a great way to gain experience, boost your well-being (and CV!) and make a difference.


Since completing ReLaunch, many participants have gained full-time or part-time employment, started their own businesses, changed careers, engaged with skilled volunteering or gone on to further education. 

ReLaunch has given me the confidence to believe that I can achieve my dreams and make a difference – despite being out of the paid workforce for many years!” (ReLaunch 2019 participant)
