My name is Martyn and I am new to the site so please go easy on me.

The reason for me posting is I am currently stuck in a Recruitment job that I would like to leave, but I want to re-train myself and join the world of web design and was looking for some good advice where to start.

I left school at GCSE level and have being working in a commercial business environment since, but now I want to gain the formal qualifications and training I need to be able to persue a career within web design and eventually be freelance.

I have looked at different ways of getting the training I need, but obviously these companies are focused on selling me the training, so i would like some impartial advice and to be told straight.

The route I am looking at is the CIW route, taking the CIW Foundation course and exam to give me the grounding, is this going to be the best route for me or can anyone shed any light on the best way for me to get the right training and qualifications I need to make this career change.

Your help and adivce will be greatly appreciated
