    Hi all , new to this. I've been working as a road surfacer for the last ten years as I've had to provide for my daughter. Now I feel I'm ready to study and am eager to be a QS. I only have my qualifications from school (long time ago) so would be starting afresh. I live in scotland and ideally I would need a distance learning course so I could continue working. I applied for a part time hnd course but it was full ,and I don't want another year to be wasted. Could anyone point me in the right direction? I've seen an online advanced diploma course which is expensive, would it be worth it? If not I'm looking for any advice possible.
    Thank you, Stephen.

    What quals do you actually need for this job/field? Look for courses that will give you those rather than just any old course which may work out being a waste of time and money without your getting what you need out of it. You may also want to find out if there's any way to study while you work on the job.
