Changing Vocations

Postby Punk » Mon Jun 11, 2018 10:46 am

I am this summer by leaving my current job and going into advocacy, any else have/has any plans?

I've to complete an NVQ3 first doing 2 days volunteering, so I'll be broke for 7 weeks but then, hopefully things will be cool.

Short term gain for a long term gain by the sounds of it. I think you'd make a good advocate if your posts on here are anything to by Punk.

I think I will change careers in the next 5 years (although I've been toying with the idea for quite some time and it never comes to fruition.) Wouldn't mind a job in education.

Dean and I aren't friends Micky. I've probably said more negative things about him in my time here than I have about you.

I don't need to like someone to agree with them if I think they've made a good point.

I've changed jobs/careers many times in my life often within the same industry but then I'll do a complete change. I wonder if thats the secret to a good working life as I haven't been unemployed for more than a few weeks in my entire working life.

I've found that everything I've done had it's merits as well as it's pitfalls and downsides, it's all a matter of your personal attitude towards what you do and who you do it with and for.

I've not long started in a completely different job to anything I've done before and at present am loving every minute of it, hoping it will take me to retirement age and maybe even beyond if I still have the verve. The company I work for is a non profit making organisation, which is a first for me and the working environment is very different from any I've experienced before, it's a real eye-opener and very satisfying.

My advice to anyone who thinks they are in a rut is make a change if you get the opportunity or failing that, make your own opportunity.

When I read it, I was wanting to ask if he was sure. Seems most schools have problems keeping children in line these days. My daughter in law is a teacher, but only primary school. She did a stint at High schools, but said it was too much like hard work. Chose wisely, Avon.

Thanks but I haven't completed it yet but yes, exciting times are afoot in our household. We'll still have that drink soon.
