Whether you’re bored of your current career or you’re longing to do something more meaningful and rewarding, it’s never too late for a career change. People often think that once you have been in a certain career for 3 years or more, then that’s it! You’re stuck and doomed to spend the rest of your working days doing the same mind numbing things over and over again.
The truth though is far more inspiring and optimistic. When thinking about taking the plunge and opting for a career change, chances are, you will actually find it’s yourself or friends and family who are trying to talk you out of it, rather than the options and opportunities to do it being readily available.
For example, let’s say you have been working within industry since you left school or college, but you have always dreamed of being a teacher, you don’t want to (and/or can’t afford to) go to university to get a Degree to make this a reality, so you resign yourself to working a job you hate. But actually, a quick search on Google or another search engine and you would quickly discover that you can achieve your career change by simply studying a BTEC Level 3 Award in Education and Training, as the course is online and entirely coursework based, you can carry on with your current job to ensure everything carries on as usual at home until you are qualified and can change careers.
So as you can see from the example above, with online learning with colleges like Open College, achieving a career change to something you want really is very simple! Even if you are thinking of doing A-Levels, you can study these part time online without the need to go back to school or quit your job. There really is very little stopping anyone from changing careers, if they have the drive and want to achieve and succeed.
