redundancy/part time-tax credits

i am due to be made redundant soon

i work full time at the mo and get 12646 a year and around £142 week tax credits incl money for childcare. i also get £17 a week child benefit.

i only earned £6500 last tax year as i only worked half the year-

my question is-if i got a part time job-would tax credit people make my tax credits up to how much i get now??
