In brief: Course for redundant professionals

City University is holding a course for professionals who were made redundant during the recession. 'Fresh options: a self-assessment programme for professionals', running for four days between 15 March and 15 April, is designed for “highly qualified and experienced people” who want to move back into the workforce. The university says all the participants will be professionals, including bankers, surveyors, architects and lawyers. Participants must have been made redundant from a firm in the City or be resident in the City of London. Contact Maggie Bankart on 0171 477 8252 or fax 0171 477 8256.
