Workshops for mums

“Workshops for mums” are classes for women who want to develop their passions and interests, improve their communication skills, and also raise their work qualifications. Late morning meetings in pleasant atmosphere will be an opportunity to meet interesting experts, to exchange experience and to gain new skills.

In order to accommodate women who take care of children, we chose late morning hours during the week for our classes. During the classes, there will be a possibility of organising a corner for children, so that the mums could keep an eye on their kids, and, at the same time, participate in the workshops without stress.

The classes will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10.30 am until 2.00 pm in the multimedia room of the Jagiellonian University Polish Research Centre in London at the building of the Polish Cultural and Social Association (238-246 King Street, London W6 ORF).

The classes begin on Tuesday 12 November 2013 and end in March 2014.
