Quote from an ITQ learner

'After completing the Level 1 BCS ITQ I was promoted to a data controller role, inputting stock data into a database. I believe this qualification has certainly improved my job prospects for the future. I now feel confident using computers and I am aiming to complete the Level 2 BCS ITQ soon'. Gilzete da Silva, Learner at MTC Learning, Swindon
