Thousands of people are doing jobs that they don’t enjoy, simply because they didn’t choose to go into further education and left school with minimum qualifications.
Having the money to go out, get the latest electronic gadgets and move away from home seems like paradise when you’re younger, but as the years roll by, some people begin to yearn to do a job a really enjoy; but they can’t, because they don’t have the qualifications and can’t afford to give up work and go back to school.
Adult education classes are a great solution to this problem. They are affordable and the classes are held in the evenings, so that you can attend after work. Admittedly, you do need to be motivated; it’s not easy to get yourself to a class after a hard day’s work, especially on winter nights when it’s cold and raining.
However, if you do have the motivation, you’ll find Adult Education classes are a good place to meet new people and gain the qualifications that you need for a new job or career.
Classes usually start in September and you pay for them at the beginning of the month, to reserve your place on the course. If it’s a bad month for spending anything extra, you can always apply for a payday loan. A company like Wonga Canada, will have the money in your bank within the hour and you can pay it back once you have your October pay packet.
If you don’t work set hours or going out to an adult education class doesn’t suit you, why not try an online course. Online courses mean that you can study wherever and whenever is best for you. If you’re really keen then you can do the course quickly, but If you don’t have a lot of free time, then you can study over a longer period.
Online courses send the materials to you in the post or by email and you complete your tasks using your computer. Not every course is suitable for online study. If you want to be a plumber or a hairdresser you might be able to work from home on the theory side, but you will have to attend classes in person for the practical lessons.
Online courses are normally more expensive than a government subsidised adult education course, but there are some companies that give discounts for earners on low incomes.
If you want to do a degree course whilst you are working, you can apply to a university and study for a degree or a diploma in stages. You have to gain a certain number of credits in order to get your degree and you can choose different areas of study, which will give you variety in your degree subjects. The courses normally start in September and each credit course must be finished within a stipulated time limit, but if you only take one credit course at a time, you’ll find the work load manageable.
Once you have the qualifications, you will be then be more able to to do a job, or start a career, doing something you really enjoy.
