Finally coming to the conclusion what I want to do, is to work in IT. I know it's a big field and if I had to narrow it down I've always had a keen interest in web design and stuff like that.
Realistically and job speaking however, I'd happily take any route which put me down that career path.
Here's my problem (not sure if you've seen my recent threads) but the field of work I'm in now and since I left school 7 years ago (I'm 23) I have absolutely no 'work experience' with computers. No A levels. All I have to my name is 4 GCSE's, A-C - the rest D's and below.
I've tricked myself into thinking university is the answer to all my problems (that's another story), but what's the best way of going about getting onto the right path?
Just to add, I detest my job at the moment. I also have a mortgage on a small flat so can't go into education full time.

Well you have access to the internet, so learn basic programming and web development skills, then look up Microsoft certificates and work your way to them. (You'll need to pay for the exams you take to achieve the certificate(s))

Don't bother with certificates for the time being. Do some of the computing classes available for free on coursera.com. That will be a big help and will effectively give you a university level degree for free.
