Looking for some advice, I have been working in a 1st/2nd line support role for over a year however the money is not that great, they don't really offer much training.
I dropped out of a university course in the 2nd year as the course was not what I expected and I didn't enjoy it, so my CV does not look great, although I do have a lot of personal experience in computing which I picked up myself.
I want to progress from a 1st/2nd line support role into a IT security role however I am unsure on which route to take? I am planning on studying for network + > CCNA R&S > CCNP Security.
I can't decide whether to focus on studying for these certifications or to pickup some programming languages and aim towards application/web testing?
Am I also considering going back to university to do a computer science course, however not sure if I would be able to get any funding?
And actually passed?
