Thanks for your responses guys..
Over the weekend I have run many google searches and found many UX / Web developer courses [some are below], but one thing I wasn't really clear on in my original post was the main reason [apart from lack of passion for current career] for change - flexibility.
My goal is for my family and I to live basically anywhere in the world (Sydney house prices scare us!) but still be able to entertain a moderate income and the internet enables this. Do you guys have any opinion on if entrepreneurship is feasible as a UX Designer? Or would experience in web development and UX design be more beneficial? I know this question theoretically cannot be answered but any advice would be welcomed....
In terms of courses I have found.. Any specific thoughts on these?
on your list - Careerfoundry : UX Designer / Web Developer
then there are these :- Bloc.io; thinkful.com; mysliderule.com........ i have read mixed reviews and they are not cheap..
The designLab sounds good.. Would you recommend doing the design 101, UX research and strategy as well as interaction design [in that order?]?
