Looking for a bit of advice, I work part time and run a small business. I reckon personally putting too much time into IT course be it Microsoft, cisco, diplomas etc is a waste for me as to get on in IT you really need to travel to the likes of Dublin etc which I am not willing to do.
I was thinking of doing an electricians apprenticeship as i could work in Cork which means alot to me.
Also I could continue in the business part time and make a few pound from that as I know the moneis are bad until you qualify or can do foxers.
I also have a bit saved so could access this as needed.
Im 32 though and will take a while to make up my mind. Would it be dificult to get an apprentaship at my age. I am looking to get a job maybe as an electricain in one of the factories around the harbour. is there a special course I need to do?
Those places are hard enough to get into Noel. Try but you're maybe as well getting in with a contractor.
The fact that you're a bit older will stand to you with most employers taking on apprentices once you don't expect to get paid any more than a normal apprentice. Most 16/17 year olds are complete divs when it comes to work, I know, I'm always landed with them, so the extra years would be seen as a bonus.
