    I would have thought three strikes and you should be off.

        You need to get a pharmacy job before you start any course, and you will probably find that most will require full-time (or nearly so). The courses involve a lot of practical training, becoming experienced, learning the procedures and gaining confidence. Most employers will also ask you to sign a contract that you will work for a certain period after qualifying or return the course fees.

        I hope that helps you with some answers and also gives you clues on how to phrase your CV. By the way, because it is an exacting job, most pharmacists will expect neat and tidy CV with good grammar and spelling.
        There are also lots of sites on the internet that will give you advice on how to write a general job application.
        47 BC : Julius Cesar : Veni Vidi Vici : I came, I saw I conquered.
        2018 AD : Modern Man : I shopped, I clicked, I collected.
        How times change.

        If you find you have read something that has upset or offended you an anyway please unread it at once.

          Buttercups is a very experienced provider, and I'm sure that if you contact them (if I recall right the owner is a Vanessa Kingsbury) they'll give you good advice, based on your current qualifications.
          You are going to need a job, though as the courses are based around practical work.
          Is it possible to find a job-share partner?
          Bear in mind, though "New Mom" that you've only recently taken on one demanding job (mother) and you're thinking about moving into something else which could be demanding, and which must take you out of the house. You're going to need robust child-care arrangements.

          Contact your nearest hospital (either Human Resources or the Pharmacy Department direct) and one or two local pharmacies. Boots training department is (or used to be) very good, and a good independent will use the NPA (again very good).
          Hospitals quite often have good child-care support.

          Do get your cv & application letters looking tidy, though. Even emails (to employers at any rate) should be in good English!
