Plumbing courses may suit people who enjoy practical work

Anyone who likes doing practical work with their hands may enjoy taking plumbing courses and being employed as a tradesman.

While office-based careers suit many individuals, there are plenty of people who prefer to be doing something active in the workplace.

Speaking to the Herald Scotland, shipbuilding apprentice Lyndsay Gray explained that she got into her current role after training as a plumber, saying she was attracted to the job as it is about being intelligent with your hands and head.

She explained that there were no engineers in her family, adding: "I liked to take things apart. The only problem was I could never put them back together again. Now I'm learning to put it all back together."

One famous face who opted to train as a plumber early on in his footballing career is former Arsenal and Leeds United defender Andy Linighan, who now owns a plumbing business.
