    Check out your local college or the Open University. You'll get best value for money from one of those rather than a commercial training provider. 8)

    would have to be the open uni route, as i've had a couple of job offers and i would need to fit the course around my shifts.
    I had one of those salesman round trying to "sell" me one of those skillstrain courses but he wasnt able to convince me to part with my wedge.
    I had a couple of years employed as a hardware engineer and enjoyed that and would like to get a useful qualification, im not under the illusion that there there is a pot of gold at the end of it. (anyway i'll be otherwise employed)

    Not necessarilly, I'm on a course with my local Uni and a few others on the course work shifts. Most of the materials are published onto secure websites for students to access, so they can be accessed from anywhere. The guys that work shifts only attend when they can.

    It would be worth investigating the possibility of it. :biggrin

    Its a grant provided to get you back into employment, the only stumbling block is that it has to be proved that it is for vocational purposes and not just educational.
    Oh you dont have to pay it back.
