A St Albans man has spoken about doing a Herts County Council apprenticeship in his forties.

Ahead of National Apprenticeship Week on Monday, March 5, Richard Gardner commended his associate project management course for giving him the opportunity to work on interesting projects.

He said: “Working alongside experienced project managers in the Improvement Team has provided me with a great deal of experience and new skills. I love the fact I am learning new things while working at the same time.

“Many people I have spoken to have been surprised I am embarking on an apprenticeship in my forties. In reality it is a great way to change careers at any time of life. However you do need to be prepared to undertake some basic tasks.”

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
