    I feel for you. It's tough when you can't even get voluntary work... Keep trying. If you haven't already, get a good cv together to show your experience.

    Another suggestion is to try local charities. Around here there are some that do offer IT support in the community and the rest may jump at someone who knows how to work one volunteering

    I'm doing that now, just trying to get my cv to a good standard. I will contact the local charities to see what they have got. Thanks for the help

    Just an update everyone. I have finally got on to an apprenticeship with a local school as an ICT Technician apprentice. I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that has posted in this thread and given me some good advice. Also a big shout out to the amazing @witch for helping me with everything.

  11. Thanks to Matty94 from:

    Good luck. (Especially if it's with a small academy chain near me).
