How easy is it to get into diamond cutting in the UK?

Wesley is wondering about one day working with diamonds.

I’m looking for a new career move and want to get into diamond cutting, polishing, and hopefully grading them. I would like to know if there are any courses available I can study, but also, is a career in this field possible in the UK?

I’ve read that a lot of the big companies often get their diamond work done abroad rather than in the UK, in places like Botswana and India. What are my chances?
