1985 to 1988
After Delarue, I spent two years at a local college on a course for people with special needs. I then joined the mainstream college where I did CPVE.
After several attempts I obtained 'C' grade in GCSE English. I also obtained a grade 'B' in GCSE Travel and Tourism and grade 'E' in Computer Studies. I also did CLAIT - Computer Literacy and Information Technology.
1992 went to a local training centre where I did office training for a year.
I then went on to do a GNVQ course in Computers where I achieved level 3.
1995 I started to work for a company that developed software for people with
special needs. My job was to
desktop publish the resource packs - I did this working at home. This
lasted for about a year.
1996 I went back to the training centre to do a level 3 in programming.
year I decided to contact the tutor at the college again because I was unable to
get a job. I went on a four-week
taster course. Then a careers officer suggested university but they
said I needed to do a foundation course. I
have done the foundation course and I am at Staffordshire
University doing the second year of a part-time computers and information
