Are there courses, collage or otherwise that cater for mature students in gamekeeping / countryside management. I am 28 and I have experience of keepering when i was younger and have always been involved in shooting by either helping out on shoots or running a small one of my own. I should have done it when I was younger but if I wanted to go into keepering full time it seems that qualificvations are much needed in this day and age so was wondering if these can be sought at my age?
Also do you think my age ( proving I had the papers ) and with the knowledge that I have or keeping it would be a benigit to me over say a collage leaver? Given that I may be seen as a little more mature and wise to the world.
I understand competing with collage leavers the pay would be poor but my wife has a decent job and I could maybe get away with doing something I love instead of my boring day job.
