As children get older and begin nursery school many mums who have previously stayed at home looking after their children often start to contemplate how they're going to get back into work. Employers will often chose someone who has recently been employed or is currently employed over someone who has been a stay at home mum for the past few years.
For that reason it's important to prepare yourself for the world of work again. Many things may have changed since you last worked, but you can easily use the skills you currently have to help give you a step ahead of the competition.

Taking an online course is a great first step to get you back on the career ladder. Online courses mean that you can work at a pace that suits you. The flexibility offered also means that you can study when your children are in bed and there's often additional support available through other learners and course teachers so you're never alone.
