I don't want to do anything that requires A Levels etc for entry, as I haven't got those.

I'm working part time at the moment in admin whilst DC is still small but he will be in nursery soon and I'd like to do something.

I'm open to considering university but I believe I'd have to do an access course of sorts first? Very open to any sort of route.

I'd like something that can eventually be fairly flexible with a good work/life balance. Another big factor is pay - I'd like to be in a very well paid job in 6/7 years from now.

Any ideas?

Consider your own business as a cleaner. Can be school hours only and you can bring on other cleaners and make it into a business and be well paid.

Train in social media marketing. Start online. No degree required. Good money. Can be freelance or employed so very flexible. Can also start your own businesses of the back of it.

HR, marketing, accountancy....
All careers that can lead to well paid positions where you can train on the job, or alongside.

Have you thought of an apprenticeship? There are better and better opportunities these days.
