Rejuvenate participants

Rejuvenate is a fully-funded course designed by Dr Joanne Fearon (School of Food and Nutritional Sciences) and delivered with the support of Skillnet Taste4Success.

The course enables women to plan their return to the workforce following a career break. This nine-day programme has been designed to give women the confidence, skills and know-how to find their ideal job. Integral to the programme is a work placement with a relevant employer.

The inaugural Rejuvenate Programme which took place in September 2019, was organised by Dr Joanne Fearon and Caroline Seacy (UCC Food Institute) and attracted talented women from all over Munster. Feedback has been very positive and there are plans to run the Rejuvenate Programme again in 2020.
