I'm in my 30's and have been looking at training up as a midwife now that my kids are all in full time education. I just want to know how others have coped in a similar situation. is there a good family and work balance and if looking to start as part time what kind of shift patterns am I looking at.
I've never been an academic I'm more a hands on learner so the thought of going into it and then finding actually I can't complete the course is very worrying. but it's something that I've wanted to do for such a long time but not had the guts to actually think it may be a possibility.
I know I need to do a 1 year access course in college and then a further 3 years in uni. am I too old for it?
Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this and give me a helping hand it's much appreciated.
