hello guys my name is Paul and I am trying to decide what to do in regards to training I am thinking of doing a course in computing and trying to decide what to do given tuition fees are going sky high from know to the future I am unsure how to retrain so I can get a decent pay packet and train up. To give a back ground I currently have a btec national diploma in photography an hnd in communications which included graphic design video production and photography and art.
I failed to complete a degree in TV production due to finding it difficult getting my head around cultural studies. So what I did get was credits for 10 modules which worked out at 10 credits per module which worked out at 100 credits I needed 120 credits to pass but I did gain some credits I do believe all my qualifications is easily equal to a degree which out having the degree title. I am considering doing some sort of top up degree to top up my hnd into a degree some how doing a 1 year top up course I guess having a degree no matter what it is in a degree means some thing.
At present I am located in the UK near Leeds. Any way I have been looking at computer courses like some sort of top up degree however it has suggested its not worth doing that it has been suggested doing a certified Microsoft course is a better route I want to get some sort of IT technician job doing technical support for servers I work for asda online shopping sorting out the orders I am thinking of doing some sort of IT job so I could work in the IT department but feel to be able to do such a job.
I will need to do some sort of training. I am also been looking at the online degrees you can do does any one know any thing about these are they worth doing or is it better to go to a college in person and get your hands on the gear in person better.
I need some advice from some IT professionals out their. The problem is I work from 2pm to 9:30pm so only get Monday free so my hours make it difficult for me to do a course.
Is their any professionals out their who could advise me any comments and advise would be appreciated please post reply’s if you have the time.
