Hi, I'm 38, an IT guy, office based and kinda fell into it about 7 years ago. I'm a help desk guy doing desktop and server support. Not really loving it and not fulfilled. I worked on site about 8 years ago doing a bit of plumbing, gas fitting and general handyman type work all under supervision. I worked hard and really enjoyed it. After some long hard thought about the direction of my life, I'm considering learning to be an electrician... not sure what I need to know about finding an apprenticeship, I randomly applied for two yesterday for large new-build domestic companies, I believe this is known as 'house bashing'. Would this be a good entry to the business, or is it too limited in scope to be of use when completing an apprenticeship? Am I too old to start? Will anyone take on an apprentice of my age? I don't have any friends that are electricians to ask for advice. Cheers.
