Women Returners

26 April 2017 

Evidence suggests that many women struggle to return to work after a career break  due to factors such as a lack of access to flexible working to support care commitments.  Their time away from the workplace often leads to them experiencing a loss of confidence and lacking relevant skills.

Building on our initial funding to Equate Scotland of up to £50,000 to support women back into the workplace, the Minister for Employability and Training has today announced additional funding of £200,000 to widen the initiative across a range of industrial sectors. 

To apply for the fund please download the application form and criteria and return to Andrew Boney at

Deadline for applications has been extended to Midnight on Monday 22nd May 2017.
