    Hello evreyone, New to the group so please bear with me!
    Ive been studying for a CIW Web Site Manager for what seems like my whole life now, I enjoy it- please don't get me wrong but I am finding it difficult partly due to the fact that I'm not in the industry, I work for Royal Mail doing a pretty boring but easy job and it looks like they pay a lot better than your entry-level IT job. CIW seems a good qualification but like any qualification its not worth the paper its on if you don't have experience to back it up with!I'm studying with SkillsTrain, again not a bad company, very helpfull tutors but i am still studying by my self at home-another bad choice making it that little bit more difficult for me:rolleyes:
    Just planning out some sort of digital cv and I'm working for free one day a week for a local charity in their IT department-its pretty difficult to get experience too.
    You all seem like a clever bunch so any advice, suggestions, compliments/insults is all welcome lol, especially anyone from skillstrain or anyone CIW people or any employers advice is all very welcome!
    Thanks for reading!

    Hi Heidihi, and welcome to the forum!

    There's been a lot of discussion on CIW lately on here, and it has its own section; have a look through the threads on there, as several of the posters are studying with Skillstrain too.

    Sorry for not saying more, I only just got into work :cry:
