Hi Guys,

I'm 38 father of 2 and was wondering how much time a part time apprenticeship takes from home life? I am looking at doing a 4 year apprenticeship and it is 1 day a week in uni the rest is all work based. I currently work in IT and only have 2 A-levels to my name, I want to make myself more employable and learn more so this opportunity came along. It allows me to stay in my current job, so I won't have to take a pay cut whilst doing a degree in Digital & Technology Solutions.

Would love your feedback.

Thank you

This sounds like a good idea, not many people are willing to get back into education at 30+ with kids, this will definitely be something that can prove determination and commitment in an interview. Furthermore, a degree will boost your career and pay.

This is not to say however that it won't be detrimental to your family life, it will obviously take up time and the pay cut may result in you living on a tight budget with little-no outings for a while.

But in the long run, this will pay off. When you get a high paying job with your degree, you will be able to treat your kids more as well as helping them out with going to uni or whatever you choose to spend your money on.

Currently 21 and doing an Engineering Apprenticeship. From my experience, I will take some time out of your home life, especially the assignments you'll have to complete to meet the course. Of course, this depends on what level of qualification you're doing. But overall its worth it and whatever time you need to set aside for course requirements will pay off in the end.

Good Luck I hope this was helpful.
