    I have had ten years out of the workplace bringing up my children and now want to return to employment but my skills will be so out of date! I don’t know where to start to update my computer skills or anything else that will help me get my foot back in the door. I am finding it quite frustrating and my confidence goes up and down like a roller coaster. I would be grateful for any advise to help me? Many thanks,.

    Hello Helen

    I’m in the position of wishing to brush up on my computer skills (it’s been 20 years since I worked full time and the new fangled emails and the internet were only used in the office by the young and trendy new recruits). Although I obviously use both now (and couldn’t imagine life without them) the thought of entering the workplace with my home-grown skills is rather unrealistic. I know I will need to attend training but what would be considered the necessary computer skills to re-enter the workplace?
    I would love to hear your views.
    Many thanks
