    A present participle.

    Why not a gerund?

    back to + noun
    back to school
    back to the basics
    back to work
    back to looking for a job; Looking for a job is what I am going to get back to (doing).

    The preposition to takes a noun as its object; infinitive to takes a base verb, an infinitive verb.
