    bit frustrating when at my age of 45 and trying to break into it and spent money through a training provider which i now know was a silly thing to do that the zenos academy are recruiting 16-18 year olds trying to take that first step into an it career. i do not begrudge them this but all very frustrating !!!

    It's not so much Zenos, but due to funding from the Government.

    That must be even more annoying considering that the majority of them don't take it seriously when they're there, and afterwards they end up in call centres with nothing to do with IT. And I very much doubt that many of them further their IT education. I, personally, am willing to put in the work and self-teach while saving enough money for the exams so I can start my career, but I'd bet about half of them will end up in McDonalds or call centres long term.

    Seriously, you would enjoy self-studying A LOT more than attending Zenos.

    Seriously, he 'might' enjoy self-study, personally speaking I don't, I prefer a classroom environment. Self study isn't for everyone.
