This course is offered by KeyNet, and I was wondering whether it was worthwhile in doing? I.E. has anyone else successfully completed it, particularly through KeyNet or another distance learning provider, and what their experiences were in gaining employment from it?
It looks good, but it's expensive (£650 for the course, excl. OCR exam fees).
If anyone has any alternative, but GOOD, qualifications which will amount to key office admin skills learnt, then do tell. I had a 'troubled' childhood and didn't get any IT qualifications, although I'm pretty proficient (can even do very very basic programming). I do lack in some areas though, like databasing and excel, but am pretty confident I can learn that very easily.
So yeah, is this worthwhile to attain, would the basic level 1 be good enough for office work, and are there any cheaper alternatives that you know of that can still do the same job on my CV?
If location helps, I'll be living in Gateshead/Newcastle-upon-Tyne from early April.
What are you thoughts?
