I started the HNC with my first employer, who was a leading national manufacturer in ventilation. By the time I finished the HNC, I had left to progress on to a Service Desk Analyst role that looks bright for my future progression.

I would recommend the University Centre as it has a relaxed atmosphere suitable for Higher Education. This is not to be taken for granted though, as what you put in is what you get out.
