A course that aims to get women into work will start next month.

Barnet & Southgate College will begin its free 'women’s return to work' course on Tuesday, September 16. It will run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9.30am to 2.30pm at the Grahame Park campus in Colindale.

Classes include writing workshops, computer skills and personal development.

Jan Brennan, a community outreach worker at the college, said: “The women who did the course previously were really enthusiastic about it. It’s hard work, but we feel its value.”
