I know a few that have been on this course...and none work in IT. The course, from what I wa told, is OK but there are a huge amount of applicants for any IT job with less and less jobs to go round. If you can afford the course (£1995 I think but I might be wrong)go for it and expect to do most of the work on your own but do not borrow the dosh in the hope of a well paid job. If you do get a job in IT, after the course, the starting pay is ultra-dire and you would probably earn more driving as bus.

as Gandalf says - 'expect to do most of the work on your own'
In which case, why not just buy a couple of books/CD's and use the numerous (free) online resources.
Some of these IT courses that promise salaries of £30k or whatever when you leave, are taking the wotsit....

I did their course about 10 years ago, and eventually got a diploma in Management Data Processing and COBOL Application Programming.

I found them very good. They send you study material to do at home, and also free hands-on experience at their college. Once you have qualified they supply you with job offers.

I did not take up any of the offers as I obtained work in a different industry, but nevertheless I found the course very beneficial.

GANDALF <|:-)>,jimmybond and freaky.

When I read GANDALF's comments regarding the possible price of the course,I decided to e-mail my local college for their part time courses,I'm waiting for the reply.
It hopefully wont cost as much.

The advert makes it sound so simple,and it probably is.It's just a lack of funds .Nothing is free in this world.

So I will pass on Computeach.

Thank you all for your comments and time.

Kind regards,Mike

I was an IT trainer for a County Council. We could get you all the Certificates for the courses you were doing, but we never said anything about getting/guaranteeing you a job at the end.

It just isn't possible to do that. As GANDALF <|:-)> says there are too many applicants for so few jobs.

I have a few City and Guilds, RSA certificates plus other qualifications but I have never been asked to produce them at any job interview I have had.

Don't need to produce them now though as I have been retired for many years.

I know someone who has HND in Computer Studies but the only job he could get was a Post Room Assistant at my local City Council.

That's a gross libel on your part.

As far as I can read from the thread linked above.

Computeach have had no input or even knowledge of what is going on there.

The young man bought the Course with a Loan.

He has not completed the First Module, until he does, and sends it back to Computeach they will be under the impression that he is still on the course.

The Company that lent him the money, to buy the course, wants paid.

because it was wildly defamatory, and based on nothing remotely reliable. I'm sorry that your posts now seem a little out of context, wee eddie and Sic - I'm sure you understand.

** I think he hoped they had gone away and forgotten about the money he owed them.....**
