Dad’s Night School Efforts Brought Rewards

Dad’s Night School Efforts Brought Rewards

Thinking back to years when I was a much younger office trainee, we didn’t have the online education and e-learning that is so fantastic today.  All our opportunities had to be found in text books and stuff from the library.  Although my own father was very entrprising and took  himself off to night school for 4 years to brush up his technical drawing skills to the point where he was qualified to get a good job with a huge multi national defence firm.  Not many forty odd year old family men would have had the stamina to do that twice a week after being at his paid work all day.  In those far off days he would bring his text books home and be reading up the subject every evening after the family meal was cleared away.  We had to keep as quiet as we could so he could concentrate.  He had always been keen on drawing and sketching so this part was no effort.  I often wonder how much easier it would have been for him to be able to tap into the incredible amount of e-learning and home study courses available in the online learning sector today !

Apprenticeships Benefit From Preparatory Courses

Apprenticeships Benefit From Preparatory Courses

There are many and varied online and e-learning courses for careers nowadays.  If a youngster decides they don’t want to go through university, they can apply to the government for help in getting on an apprenticeship for all kinds of long term careers.   A neighbour’s lad chose specifically to take this route and prior to applying for an engineering apprenticeship attended a two year preparatory engineering course at a local higher education college.  He is now going through the several layers of the interview process for two very large international companies – either would offer a very substantial training package and full qualification upon copletion of their apprenticeship scheme.  It requires a lot from each candidate in terms of commitment to the company in terms of the daily work.  Keeping up with any mandatory study time is essential to keep abreast of the administrative side of the package.  Many online courses area geared up for generic purposes so a little research will be helpful to get exactly the right package to be helpful.

Retraining Exciting Career Moves For Silver Brigade

Retraining Exciting Career Moves For Silver Brigade

I have a walking club acquaintance who has always seemed pretty average in the educatinal stakes – she never takes much interest in the round table chats when a bunch of us meet up.  I’ve only heard her make short bursts of interesting and dryly amusing conversation now I come to think of it.    However when she suddenly stopped turning up for our twice weekly jaunts around a local country park, she was missed greatly.  It turns out that she’d decided to take a home study course in forensic criminology – and she’d actually worked for the security services all her life . . . . this brought the round table to an immediate stop.  It further transpired that two other ladies in our group had worked in that field and taken early retirement when their department had been farmed out to a private company and they had been overlooked for retention in the new set up.  Even better, these two ladies were also e-learning by way of home study courses – one to be able to carry out blood testing in a private lab near her village and the other to be a specialist teaching assistant in a pre prep school.   Who knew what interesting people we find ourselves waltzing round the lakes with!
