    Hi.
    Basically I finished my education in Poland after A-level and moved to UK with promise of education and well paid engineering job. And I got it. After a year of checking what I really want to do I found myself liking automatics and electrical control staff. My employer send me to college for Modern Apprenticeship(electrical engineering) for a year but it has very low level in my subject(actually it gives just SVQ 3 without any serious knowledge).

    It is worth to mention that in Poland I learn C++ and Pascal(basics, no A-level), advance math(44% not perfect but still pass and basic version I pass with 76%), English(speaking 66%, writing 98%). Here I did some English courses(2 more years to finish it).

    I already did few projects on relays and now finishing one on Siemens Logo(which is nearly finish just need to assemble in production area).

    My questions is: What is should aiming for? How and where can I get more knowledge and skills? I want to be recognized as a professional industrial automation engineer/designer. Here is just a time problem because my employer is happy to pay for all my courses, but not allow me to left factory for longer paid period(unless I leave, but this job is too good paid). I thinking about Beckhoff PLC course, but I know it is not enough. Another course I want to do it is high voltage.

    By the way. Is here someone who work with Beckhoff Twincat 3? What I should order to create simple programs in this environment.

    Thanks for answers.

    I don't know about your situation, but you might want to give some thought about your ability to stay in the UK.
