From education to employment

Taking Family leave whilst working in further education

The FE Show with SJ White – @WeAreJoyFM #EveryoneInEducation   

Last week SJ chatted to Heen and Kayte about their experiences of taking maternity leave whilst working in further education.

With special guests Helen and Kayte we chatted all things maternity, paternity and family leave.

Sharing experiences that were all different we found commonality in keeping communication open and having honest discussions.

Reflecting on mum guilt and the motherhood penalty that hols so many back.

Helen shared the work of the MTPT Project which supports parents and parents to be and we learnt that support is always available.
