If you could re train in any field of work, what would it be?

I'm one of the lucky few that are completely satisfied with my job, and have no plans to do anything else between now and eventual retirement.

That said, I really wish I'd learnt more sheet metal skills when I was an apprentice, and I still kick myself for not taking advantage of an offer to work in the forge at the Royal Arsenal after my apprenticeship finished (although one of the main issues with that was the clear implication that joining the Masons was going to be necessary).

Other than that, though other careers may have earned me more money, I doubt I'd have been happier in them.

I'm in television and on my bad days I think about what i'd be up to if I had taken the apprenticeship at vauxhall in their body shop rather than go to college and do AV stuff.
If I were to retrain it would be in the automotive industry I.e mechanic, restoration, motorsport maybe
