About Us

The Return to Work for Women program is a course designed for women who are looking to re-enter the paid workforce after an extended absence.

If you've been out of the workforce for a while, this could be the right first step for you to help you regain your confidence, brush up on your professional skills and learn computing and digital literacy skills.

The course can greatly improve your chance for successfully re-entering the workforce, with 80 per cent of our graduates going on to employment or further studies in an area of interest.

What will I study?

Topics covered in the course include:

  • writing and maths for work
  • problem-solving
  • job-seeking strategies
  • resume, selection criteria and interview techniques
  • interview preparation
  • computing skills
  • work experience.


Students find this course a valuable and fun experience as they hear from a range of guest speakers, learn practical skills, update their referees and professional knowledge through the work experience component and learn with each other in a supportive environment.

Where will I study?

Classes are held at CIT Tuggeranong, two days per week over 14 week during school hours.
