I have been studying distance learning qualifications, short COD courses which interest me, I have had to pay for them, but it interest me and hoping it will help me get into paid work. The other thing is experience, I shall look at the volunteer organizations and register, I have tried before but I didn't have the CPD qualifications.
I've applied for retail, admin, skills tutor, IT trainees, content writer, cleaning. I guess I need to stop worrying about why I'm not getting anywhere or getting interviews as that's what agencies ask me on the phone.
I have looked at postgraduate, Masters courses but don't know if I want to study at local institute after what went on.
I think the best option for now is to keep applying for everything and try to get experience in different environments.
I'll see how it goes.
