Raising children will no doubt be one of the most rewarding things you will do in life. Those precious few months will be some of the most important to you. So why let the anxieties of going back to work spoil that? Having children often creates the opportunity to retrain and return to a new, more flexible role where you can turn your previous passions into a new career.
We work with mums – expecting, new and experienced - who are looking to get back on the career ladder. Our courses have been designed with flexibility in mind, enabling you to study at a pace that suits your busy lifestyle. The careers we offer are also specifically chosen to support flexible working, like becoming a Teaching Assistant – ensure you align your working hours to those precious to you to achieve true career happiness.
60% of mums change jobs after maternity leave
26% of mums have had flexible working requests turned down by existing employers
64% of new mums are interested in retraining
For too long mums who want to go back to real careers have felt like they have been sidelined by existing employers. If they do change jobs, it is often solely to accommodate more flexible working and not necessarily a career they are passionate about. We aim to eradicate this and create opportunities to engage in a career you are passionate about.
I want to be a

The trainer Oliver Smallwood is the best tutor I’ve had the pleasure of working with
Sammy was absolutely brilliant
Very good service..Katie Mcgovern was very professional
Brilliant so helpful and polite..
Initially, I had a very friendly and respectful conversation with one of the sales team, a gentleman called Steve Devine, who in subsequent phone calls explained everything in thorough and simple terms. Not only is Steve friendly and have brilliant interpersonal skills, but he is also very supportive and irrefutably goes the extra mile so as to ensure your full understanding of every detail of the course, and that you are well informed about the decisions you want to make.
Yes definitely very helpful and understanding towards my requirements. 😊
You answered any questions that I had.
They was really helpful and friendly , I had a very good experience with the training room service.

They're extremely patient and are never get frustrated with repeating themselves, I was really nervous just for the booking but their service is just great it seems like a breeze!
If I could type all the experiences just in the booking stage this review would be too long.
So long story short... you got nothing to worry about they got you.👊
Really helped me in finding the right product for me, which was the most convenient in terms of learning options and assessment dates and locations

Sammy has been looking after me throughout my process.
She’s kept me really informed, made my options clear, offered great and has got me really excited to start the course!
They really care about the customer and make everything easy even through phone I was able to do everything due to their understanding and kindness
Very helpful and informative, have full explanation of details of courses available to me and rang back when they said they would
I've had a really great start in my journey, i have chosen the E-Learning fitmess level 2, PT level 3 and Strength amd Conditioning level 4. Everyone involved has been supportive and have outlined all the details very well. I had doubts about commiting to such a long course with all payments but was made to feel more at ease prior to booking. I have only recently started the course but what the work i have completed is very interesting and all the tools are available to gain a great degree of knowledge, whether that be course manuals and tutors that are available through email. I'd highly recommend the course to others. I have been very impressed so far! :)
They stop at nothing to assist student.
It is Early days but so far every member of staff I have spoken to in the booking process have been so lovely and helpful. I am really excited to start my learning.
From the first phone call I received to actually booking was a* all the way. I spoke with a girl called Molly she told me everything about the course and all I needed so very helpful even when emailed questions that I couldn't think off o the phone after an email sent the response and answers where quick and told me all I needed. Even down to after I applied and was successful Molly phoned to congratulate me and make sure I was still ok and said of I needed her she was a phone call away. Honestly so easy to do and made me feel excited for my new career change.
Helpful, efficient, friendly and a very good service. Shane Creech and Charlotte Sykes in Finance were very helpful in deciding on an IT route and setting up the course.
