Going back to school is something that crosses everyone’s mind once they have left the education system. Some miss the structure and fun of school life, and some miss learning new skills, so should we head back to school?

Once you reach a certain age, you will need to pay to go back into education. This isn’t the cheapest, with some long courses costing £1000’s. You will need to consider if this is going to be affordable for you and whether or not the new skill you are learning is going to bring you something to benefit from.

Going back to school can be beneficial, but it is not always what you need. If you find you want to learn something new, try another way. You can learn through online classes, through YouTube videos, even through meeting people at networking groups. It doesn’t need to be as expensive as going back to school.
