STEM Returners

We have a lot of members who are looking to come back into the industry after taking a break, most commonly while producing the next generation of (hopefully) great engineers and techies. The best place to find out about returner programs is with StemReturners, and we have had great feedback from members who have used them so thought we’d take a look and share some of their current programmes with you.

A full list of the companies can be found here.

Stem Recharge

STEM Returners and Women Returners are excited to launch the second cohort of STEM ReCharge, a free-of-charge Return to Work Support Programme for tech and engineering professionals based in the Midlands and North of England. The programme is open to all genders who have taken a caring-related career break of 12 months or more.

Participants on the programme will benefit from expert return-to-work coaching and job skills training, STEM-specific technical skills refreshing, mentoring, connection with a like-minded peer group, connections to employers and ongoing support sessions.
