Careers to retrain at 35

Any careers worth looking into more than others?

That would depend on your existing qualifications and current situation!
What are you looking for - academic study or immediate vocational training?
Online or in person? Full or part time?
At what level? Some careers might be within easy reach if you have GCSEs and lots of energy; others might only be worth considering if you already have postgraduate qualifications in a niche subject.
But I can’t think of many things that would be ruled out by being 35 - so you probably have lots of options.
What are you interested in? If you’re not sure, the quizzes and info on the National Careers Service site might be a good place to start.

I think it’s quite common to have a second career now. Why don’t you say what kind of things appeal OP? It might be the quickest way to narrow it down.

Are you quite unable to expand on your skills and interests?
(Threads tend to work best when an OP actively engages in the conversation …)
