    Of course not, get on a course, apprentice – usual stuff. Just crack on with it. 🙂

    Anything is possible and companies like ‘New Career Skills’ train a lot of people of that age.

    However….you need to ask yourself some serious questions before stumping up the cash for such a course, as a lot of people don’t see it through after the initial excitement and dedication.

    Definitely not. Just apply for same course as anyone else would. It’s a true-ism that education is wasted on the young, I suspect you’ll pit more in and get more out of a course than will a young-un. Once you have your ticket you should find employers and customers treat you as having more credibility so make the most of it.

    If you were from Easten Europe you’d just turn up here, claim you had the required skills / experience and start working.

    As above. If not how does one go about such things?
