    I'm sick of phoning little old ladies for a living, and asking them if they would like to help a charity.
    I have a HNC in computing which is nice, but not very useful as far as I can tell. Hopefully I can get a bit of direction amongst experienced IT professionals.

    Hello and welcome to the forums! You'll find that a HNC is useful to you but only with relevant real world experience (and a few industry certs like A+, N+ and MCDST) wouldn't hurt :p

    I'm assuming you're looking to start in 1st line support, right?

    Talking about the first line support, I was just checking up on the MCDST. Freaky!!
    Being telesales orientated I suppose it would be a natural progression and I would have some of the skills in place already - anything is a better than what I am doing now to be honest :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the welcome, and thanks for JISER for setting a link to the site!

    I started the course (originally to do a HND) as a mature student aged about 28 at the time, so they basically took my word for it that I would try hard. A lot of the younger guys had done either A levels or a foundation course.
    The HND is 6 modules in the 1st year, and 6 modules in the 2nd.
    Each module is worth 20 points, for a HND you need all 12 modules for the 240 points required to pass, a HNC is only 160 (8 Modules), I had some personal stuff so exited with my six 1st year passes and just concentrated on 2 modules for 2nd year.
    They exited me with a HNC which I was glad of as I didn't have a great 2008 :P
