Training/retraining

Options
So my wonderful husband has left me and I have realised I don't want to be stuck in retail forever, not enough money. I was looking at something data/finance wise but have to clue where to start. I'm currently doing a history degree with the open uni and now I see that won't help me and the kids much when it comes to finding a home. So does anyone have anywhere they can point me for legit online courses?

Please and Thank you all round :)

    If you google on 'free online courses' that's not a bad starting point. That way you can get a taste of various options without having to splash out cash and then find you're not enjoying it.
    Googling on your question might have been both quicker and easier, if you're only after simple facts rather than opinions!

    Have a look at the local colleges and what they offer for adult education. 

    Often they are online, and often there are funds available in certain circumstances so worth talking to them if there's something you like the look of.

    I've seen Weston College advertising free HGV training amongst other things, maybe there are similar initiatives local to you?
