Making It Possible, the personal and career development day for parents and carers, returns in Autumn 2019.

The programme will empower successful applicants to focus on their individual goals, plan a route to achieve them and address the specific barriers and challenges they face. Making It Possible is for you if you’re on maternity/paternity leave or if you’re currently working but concerned you will stagnate in your career due to juggling work with parenting and/or caring demands. Or you may be fired up to advance your career but struggling to actually make it happen.

Course content

The one-day development course will take place in London (Wednesday, 9th Octiober), Leeds (Wednesday, 16th October) and Cardiff (Tuesday, 5th November). Each day will run from 9.30am to 5pm with a free crèche at each location (there will be suitable breaks in the schedule for those who need to feed babies). The groups will come back together for progress update calls which will be scheduled in November and January.
