Aye cheers but as i don't have the Education requirements i wouldn't qualify for the programme I'm well aware any company that has to recruit overseas Arent the best to work for, sure plenty of companies don't have to recruit outside of Canada, there are plenty of drivers in Canada from third world countries who probably never had much schooling but it seems there is always a way around it for some people once Applying for residency .

There isn’t a ‘way around it’. If the education requirements aren’t met, then they’re not met. Most have at least secondary education, or if not then they’ll go back to school (even if just evening classes) to get it.

Could you not get your secondary education now? Are you in the UK? If so it’s free to get GCSE level in English and maths for adults.

Lots of people manage to get qualifications whilst in full-time employment (including myself, and my husband who got an MBA whilst working). Do you do shift work or are evenings generally free? If so, you could look at evening classes. Sometimes it's the last thing you feel like doing when you've been at work all day, but as a means to an end...........

There may also be weekend classes too, that's worth looking in to.

Good luck.

No I don’t shift work but do long shifts including travel to and from work , I have been in touch with learndirect and they do a course similar to a GCSE , which is called a functioning course I'm not Entirely sure if immigration Canada would except this instead of a gcse in maths or English anyone know if CiC would except this as proof of Eduction , thanks kindly

Unfortunately I don’t think they will, when my GCSE exam results were submitted to WES another non GCSE exam was also submitted and this was not accepted. Please remember you need a minimum of 3 GCSE for a evaluation to confirm your education is equivalent to a high school diploma. I would try to find either a local or online tutor that does GCSE’s

Good luck

A lot of study can now be undertaken as an external student, and you only need to attend for exams or practical's, etc.

I listen to lectures on my drive to and from work, and watch them online at home as well. Assignments are submitted online as well (currently studying a degree full time and working fulltime so it can be done )
