Aimed at those who have previously studied or worked in SET, this 10-week online course, Return to Science, Engineering & Technology offers the chance to develop new directions and to plan a route back into SET employment. The first part of the course is spent reflecting on precious achievements and developing the participant’s CV using the Open University’s electronic portfolio system. The next section explores the employment trends and opportunities within specific industry sectors, including accessing support from industry experts and mentors. During the final section an action plan is produced to help achieve your future goals. The course includes development of techniques and skills to help with networking, finding job opportunities and writing successful applications. The course is studied entirely online and many of the activities are carried out collaboratively with other participants in our unique virtual learning environment.
