I chose to do this course as I enjoy computing, it offers the best options and covers a lot of areas. My biggest achievement so far has been coming third place in the Networking & Security Skills Competition. After college, I’d like to get into Cyber Security. My course covers this area but the tutors are also teaching me the soft skills I’ll need on a day-today basis.
