I used to go to college with a 30-something year old that wanted to learn the trade so you should be OK.Your sensible in trying to finish your present apprenticeship and then move on,it's always something you can fall back on if things go pear shaped in the future.
With the way things are any jobs a good 'un at the moment.
that makes me feel better, a couple of the other apprentices at my work are 32 and 36 or something like that
i know babcock is a huge company and thats probably how that works but i would be looking to do this as soon as, in my earlier 20's anyway.
I know a few people that if i were to tell you a few stories, you would laugh and say how the... like one who is an apprentice for vauxhall, 'why is the air coming out cold when the engine isnt running although its set to hot?'
ive often asked how they manage to get apprenticeships. Even if it does go pear shaped and i cant get an apprenticeship, theres always plenty of things to do on cars DIY style i guess.
16-24 is apparently the age for a modern apprentice.
