What happens after you’ve taken say a five-year break from your original career to raise your children, and you want to try something COMPLETELY different?
So many women wrongly feel that their professional skills have atrophied since they chose to stay at home looking after their children. That at best you’ll be stuck doing what they did before, perhaps at a slightly less senior position, because now you must have the option of flexibility.
That could not be further from the truth.
You’ve SO many options.
There’s the Open University- so flexible with such a vast range of courses; perhaps this is the perfect way to retrain around your responsibilities? http://www.open.ac.uk/
There is always the option of volunteering in your preferred area to gain insight or understanding of what it would actually be like to work in a new field, just by dipping your toe in so that you have little risk and commitment . Check out http://www.volunteerscotland.net/
