Training for parents returning to work

Written by Alice Newport on 21 May 2018

We are looking for ways to improve the training we provide new employees who are returning to work after a break to look after their children. This is not existing employees returning, this is rather new employees we recruit. At the moment I am just trying to establish whether there is any specific themes that employers offer in addition to industry specific training. We were thinking perhaps around building confidence, IT skills etc. Does anyone have any experience in this? Or perhaps ideas on the types of training someone in this position might look for within a future employer?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Alice,

Good question!

Not sure if this will help, but Digital Mums are big into supporting mums back to work, so their website might have some useful information or you might be able to partner with them:
