I'm quite confident, at 45, that peer pressure isn't a factor ;)

Just 45.  That explains a lot! ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D ;)

The course whilst accredited as a degree is actually run by an airline training department, the facility is at one of their maintenance bases, and is a five day week rather than the usual two or three. This is largely due to the practical element. Which makes it industry relevant and allows for holiday work as an unlicensed mechanic... Thus providing income AND building experience whilst becoming formally qualified.

The experience issue is a tricky one. Whilst my shift leader has no concerns with my ability, work ethic and accessing the relevant information, my current role is limited to a sliver of one sub section, specifically Chapter 25 whereas the Licence requires a broad spread of hands on across every system.

In short, I need to move on, the question is finding the most effective way to do so.  ;)
So - you get paid to do the stuff you enjoy doing (and have the aptitude for) then at the end you get a degree and the chance to get paid doing more of what you enjoy doing (and have the aptitude for).
When do you start?

Potentially September, although a couple of things have occurred in the last two days that could well expedite the moving forward phase... Which may or may not have an input on the degree... Either way would be positive.  :y

What have you got to lose? You’re young enough to reap the benefits one way or another no doubt.
