    Hi, I'm 30 and I'm from Chesterfield in the UK.

    I recently took voluntary redundancy from a manufacturing company where I worked for 11 years :ohmy

    I want to make a drastic career change (I worked on a production line making horseshoes!), hopefully becoming a PC technician or something like.

    I have the ECDL (basic I know) and now I'm hoping to study for the A+ at home.

    Any advice welcome!

    Cheers.

    Welcome to CF,

    Its a small world, I grew up in Chesterfield. I lived in Old Whittington till the age of 8 then New Whittington till I was 20. I then moved to Newbold till I was 26 and then Brampton. I live near Sherwood Forest now I just moved here about 2 months ago.

    Where about are you from?
