It’s true that the vast majority of people who are entering further education pathways are young, but that doesn’t mean that you are ever “too old” to study.
In recent years, there has been an increase in mature age students as more and more people seek to refine, or completely change, their knowledge and skill base to assist with self or job improvement and in many cases to assist in changing professions.
Whether you’re bored and unchallenged by your current job, or want to upskill yourself to gain that promotion you have been working so hard to achieve, it’s never too late to learn something new.
There are, however, many things to consider. Take a look through the guide below for some helpful tips designed to assist you with returning to study.
Children and income:
Many people worry about the lack of income and the ability to take care of their children when considering a return to study.
Whilst full-time study can be a burden on oneself, Gold Training has many options for part-time, a flexible study that you can work around any sort of schedule, ensuring that the pressure on your family and income is minimal.
Age and technology:
Another issue that many have is that technology has overtaken them and that they are “too old” to study, stating a fear that they cannot keep up with the younger generations.
Fortunately, Gold Training can quell all of these fears with dedicated and patient teaching staff that can help you through any issue you have with the course or technology.
Why risk putting that dream career in jeopardy any longer?
The biggest concern mature age students have is the perceived lack of support on behalf of the Registered Training Organisation.
A fear that you can be left behind and wasting your own money is completely unfounded with Gold Training.
