A Directory of Education and Training for Women

Eighth Edition

Other Titles in:
Women in Management

May 1996 | 368 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Are you: A woman wanting to return to work after a break? A woman seeking to improve career prospects through education or training? An adviser providing education or training or an employer keen to develop your awareness of the opportunities available to women?

If you are any of these you need the Eighth Edition of Returning to Work: a directory of education and training for women.

Compiled by the Women Returners' Network, this unique directory of education and training for women has been completely revised.

It provides information on over 1,700 courses across the UK which offer opportunities and facilities that enable women returners to participate in, for example: shortened-day timetables to fit in with school hours; hands-on experience with information technology equipment; job-sampling experience; the opportunity to assess abilities, discover new interests, widen horizons and develop confidence; and guidance and counselling sessions.

Returning to Work also gives vital information on: how to find out what education and training is available; key national training providers; eligibility for mandatory grants and details of awards and sponsorship schemes; national organizations offering further support for women returning to education or training or employment; and local contact points for further information and advice in county or region.
