Have you thought about completing an apprenticeship? Apprenticeships are for any age and are the opportunity to 'earn while you learn' whether you are just starting out or looking to progress in your career.
Intermediate apprenticeships - follow work-based learning towards level 2
Advanced apprenticeship - follow work-based learning towards level 3
Higher apprenticeships - follow work-based learning towards levels 4,5,6 & 7 – equivalent to a foundation degree and above
Degree apprenticeships - follow work-based learning towards levels 6 & 7 – equivalent to a full bachelor’s or master’s degree
Employers also run ‘in-house’, on the job training to gain qualifications and there are university courses too.
you get paid and train at the same time, with at least 20% of your time spent in off the job training, often at a college, university or with a training provider
you train to be fully competent in your chosen occupation
you’re on a career path - with lots of future potential for you
