You're 30 years old, you're married, you have no children but are trying, you do not own your own home but are wanting to within a year or so.
You've worked your way up in an office role, you have great responsibility, not a whole lot of pay, you have brilliant benefits, it's secure and you're going no where. But you REALLY want to get into a trade.
Have you missed the boat on apprenticeships?
Realistically, you're talking about doing a course over a year or 2 years during the evenings, then joining an apprenticeship scheme at say £800 pm, for a few years until you're more established.
Is this still the case?
Would a 31 year old newbie get laughed off the park?
