Are you a Mum or Dad or Carer thinking about returning to study?
Friday, 19 February 2021
If you’re thinking of adding in some study to your busy life this year – don’t undervalue the skills you’ll be bringing to your new challenge!
If you’ve been balancing family life and parenthood or a role as a carer, chances are you have some very under-rated skills in organisation, time management, self-discipline, and prioritising challenges. You may even have some strong support networks you can call on when you need an extra pair of hands or three!
All these skills and the fact that you’re thinking about a return to study mean that you’re possibly already considering how you really can fit a new challenge into your schedule.
