Rock your Return combines expert, professional, tailored development with a true understanding of the realities giving you the tools and confidence required for a smooth transition back into work.

Who’s it for?

This programme is for anyone due to return to work after having a family, employed or self employed. There is also a course for Line Managers.

THE SESSIONS

4 x 30 minute video workshops

The course runs as a series of 'taught to camera' video workshops – imagine them like real life workshops...only they are done from the comfort of your sofa and no-one can see if you haven't washed your hair for days.

Informal, full of questions that get you thinking alongside practical actions you can take away to make changes happen right now. Here's what we cover:


Workshop one: BACK TO ME

Gain clarity on exactly what you want your return to look like and why, creating a focused plan for the coming weeks / months.


WORKSHOP TWO: NAILING THE NEXT STEPS

After this one you'll feel more confident and prepared to manage any difficult conversations that might be on the horizon. You'll also be fully clued up on flexible working, making a job share work and your legal rights.


WORKSHOP THREE: PREPARING FOR WORKING MOTHERHOOD

The washing, the shopping, the commute, the sheer volume of stuff to do! How to get so organised that this working parent thing will be a breeze. Plus, we cover all the practicalities of your return, including choosing childcare, what on earth to wear when nothing fits and feeling fully prepared for the first few weeks back.


WORKSHOP FOUR:

Building your support tribe, maxing up on the self-care and dialling up the confidence. You’ve got this

Natasha | PR Manager

“Provides the tools and thinking space to enable you to successfully plan and achieve balance within your life upon returning to work. Practical advice, which is easy to implement, even in the busiest of lives.” 

Kerry | Assistant Head, Secondary School

“The workshops made a huge difference! Before the sessions, I was struggling to strike a balance and wasn’t feeling particularly confident or positive about my return. The programme helped me to think clearly about the reality of my days and my roles and not just the self-critical version of these things in my head! The resources and tools were really useful to support me in continuing to reflect and practise good habits after the sessions. This has been an integral part of my successful return to work.”
