…since I last posted!
Been a bit busy with family life, the boy and Uni so I have not managed to post anything for a long while. Since my redundancy back in December 2011, I have also been cycling like an idiot* to ward off depressing moments and to get my fitness back.
18 months ago I decided to embark on a MSc IT Management course at my local University to improve my future prospects and gain employment in the IT sector. Notoriously competitive for junior roles and sparse local recruitment I decided that a MSc would benefit me rather than sit around moaning about lack of choices in the area.
The course at UWCN has been enjoyable, interesting and I have met some new people who had a great deal of experience. I was also elected course representative which gave me some leadership and diplomacy (!) skills!
I covered a range of modules including:
- Accounting & Financial Control
- Information Systems Development
- Managing Projects & Programmes
- Enterprise Infrastructure Management
- Legislative & Professional Issues
- Strategic Planning for Technology Management
