Any female telecoms engineers out there?

I am thoroughly sick of my office based job. Office politics and the monotony of my work as a secretary are driving me mad.
I want something completely different and have spotted an ad for trainee engineers. I would absolutely love to learn technical skills and it seems like a good opportunity with room to progress. Has anyone ever changed career from something desk based to a more physical role and what were the challenges you faced?

Depending on where you are there is funding available for you right now...

Thank you *sackrifice - I clicked on the link but unfortunately applications have now closed. That's a real shame as I would have been very interested. I will keep checking back.
I'm dreading going into work tomorrow sad

No they haven't...click on the area that you are in and see if there is an open hub near you.

Its a current scheme open for the next year.

Qpplications closed for the people to apply to become a hub...not for people who want to retrain.
