Have you found yourself back in the classroom - virtual or otherwise - long after you left school? We’re looking for people who have taken steps to futureproof their careers by upskilling.

Perhaps you’re teaching yourself to code, or maybe you’ve enrolled in an evening class or online course to help your employment prospects. It might have been something you did with your employer’s blessing, or maybe you’ve struck out on your own.

Maybe you’ve struggled to find work and did it as a way to get back on the career ladder, or perhaps you’re concerned about the pace of change in your field and want to stay ahead.

Whatever your brand of lifelong learning, we want to hear from you - email josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz
