Return to Work

This Return to Work Level 6 course is targeted at the adult learner who is considering re-entering the workforce after an extended career break. This course will allow learners to upskill and refresh both hard and soft skills and give them the tools and confidence they need to step back into a professional work environment. The way we work has changed significantly in recent years and adults who have been out of the workforce may feel unprepared for the current office environment.

I started in Rathmines College doing the QQI Level 5 MedicaI Studies not really knowing what to expect. I loved it! So much so I came back and completed the QQI Level 6 in Advanced Business and Legal. The tutors and staff are all so helpful and as a student of the college you will be guaranteed every element of support.
