Ive just started a course with the Open Uni. Im 34, and I am retraining in 1 of the STEM fields.
I quit full time work because they would not allow me to reduce my hours to part-time so, although I am currently not working, I will be getting a part time job very soon.
I obviously have to buy laptop, software etc for the course, I also have 3 children to take care of.
Is there any advice others in my position could offer about grants/funds/entitlements that may be available to me?
