As a direct response to those who have lost their jobs as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, School of Hard Knocks have created a shortened, online and high impact version of our standard eight week course. With an urgent focus on re-employment, the SOHK Back in the Game short course will be delivered over five days, within one week, running from 9:30am to 12pm.

Course Dates

We currently have no Back in the Game Courses running in Wales but you will still be able to register for upcoming courses once they are confirmed by filling out this simple form.

What should I expect from the course?

The Back in the Game course will include three compact Zoom sessions (live) each morning for one week, with facilitated group work followed by scheduled 1-1 phone calls in the afternoon to support individual needs.

Our dual aim is to help participants both mentally and practically. We want to help participants get into a positive state of mind with some helpful strategies to enable a growth mindset as they consider possible new sectors and employers. We also want to support participants as they get up to speed on their accelerated journey back into work. This includes a CV re-work, thinking through their online profiles and interview preparation and technique.
