At FDM, we help you back into a rewarding and successful career. Whether it has been 1 year or 20 years, our Returners Programme is dedicated to supporting professionals who have taken a career break on their journey back to work.

Re-skill and accelerate your progression
As part of the programme, you will receive seven weeks of fully-funded training designed to reconnect you with your existing skills, refresh your knowledge and equip you with industry-recognised qualifications. It covers professional skills and business and tech-specific training, focusing on Business Analysis, Project Management, Excel and Agile methodologies, ensuring that you are prepared for any career path ahead of you.
Our academy centres where you will train are located in London, Leeds or Glasgow. Once you have completed your training, you will start working on exciting projects with our leading clients as a fully integrated member of their teams.
