    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.

    Regards Paul.

    Speak to your HR department and tell them you'd be interested in moving over into the IT department and ask if they can put you in touch with someone who could tell you what sort of qualifications, experience, etc. you need.
