What do you do?
We provide face to face training courses designed to help you back to work, find a new job or new career.

We also offer face to face business start-up and business development training.

All our courses and programmes are run in a fun, friendly and professional environment.

What will I get from the training?
You will receive professional support to help you begin a new career or start a business. Many of the women we work with a find a flexible or part-time job, re-train for a new career, start a business, develop an existing business or even go on to discover a new career they didn’t even know existed.

We also work closely with local employers and can help connect you with companies offering flexible job opportunities. 100% of the mums that have attended would recommend us.

Are you on social media?
Yes, you can read about our training courses, our adventures to support mums and the many women we have helped. Find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.  Why not connect with us to follow our events, achievements and adventures helping mums like you.
How much does it cost?
Many of the training courses delivered by the Successful Mums team are fully funded and are therefore free to you. This is subject to eligibility criteria – please see the individual course you are interested in for further information.

Jane Knight also offers one-to-one coaching and executive business progammes for mums who have started their business and are committed to taking it to the next level.

Can I bring my children?
Babes in arms are welcome to our training, however due to the nature of our courses we have to ask that children don’t attend – there’s a lot to learn and we will need your full attention. We also want the experience to be about you as an individual.
Do I have to be a mum?
We mostly work with mums, as we cover topics that are close the hearts of many women with children. However, we also welcome Dads, carers and non-parents – if you think you could learn something from us, then we would love to welcome you onto one of our programmes.
Are you a recruitment company?
We don’t offer recruitment services, however what we can do is connect employers and skilled mums through our free job board.
My children are grown up, does this matter?
Not at all, we welcome women throughout all stages of motherhood. We see mums with bumps, small babies, grown up babies and grandchildren.
Can dads attend?
Of course, we do have dads join us and they are able to take a lot away from our programmes.
Which area do you work in?
We offer training across London and Kent.


How can connect with these skilled women?
There are various ways you can connect with our groups. You can advertise on our job board to reach out to our wide audience, connect with our Successful Mums graduates or host a course with us.
How much does it cost?
The job board is free to use, then just £395 as an introduction fee when you employ your Successful Mums. There is no cost for you to host a course (just provide a training room, some of your time for meetings, and tea, coffee and biscuits are always appreciated!)
What skills do your Mums have?
Our Successful mums offer a range of skills including the many transferable skills from being a parent (patience, empathy, organisational skills, good time management), along with their existing skills set and experience from years of working in a range of sectors. Many of the women we work with want to use their skill set more locally since having a family and have a huge offering to local businesses that embrace and benefit from part-time and flexible working.

The common theme is their commitment to working, their reliability and their ability to get the job done.
