Some of our Success Stories
This is just a small sample of some of our success stories. It's a selection of people who are much like you and who selected Joskos to help them launch their IT careers.
Zaida speaks to us about how Joskos helped her change from being a Retail manager to an IT professional.
"I would recommend Joskos 100%. Just because of them I’ve got my job, my certifications, my knowledge and my confidence. Because of them I started understanding that I can make it."
"A month and a half ago, I was looking for something that would help me to get a start in my IT career. I found Joskos, booked my appointment and went in to meet them. The guidance they gave me was fantastic and invaluable so I joined them in March 2014 to start my certification course."
"In December 2012 I enrolled with Joskos IT training as a student. The career consultants, virtual learning centre and online course was so helpful that by April 2013 I had passed my CompTIA A+ and three Microsoft professional exams with just one left to make me a Microsoft Certified IT Professional.
Due to my progress I was called for an interview and got a work placement by April 2013 as a Service Desk Engineer. After my placement I was offered a job as an IT Support Engineer which is a dream come true. It has being an amazing and wonderful experience being a Joskos student.
Thanks to the Joskos team for guiding and helping me towards achieving my set goals."
"After landing a great role in the heart of the City, the square mile, my career has gone from strength to strength"
"Having worked as an IT Trainer for 8 years I decided to progress into a career in Networking and Support. I had the desire to work in that field but without knowledge of how to penetrate such a competitive market and after applying for numerous positions I eventually realised that I had neither the qualifications nor the required experience to make the move.
Joskos was able to offer insightful information on the industry, invaluable careers advice and a training programme to match. I’m happy to say that within a short space of time after sticking with their programme I passed my first MCTS exam and was offered a job with Capita as a 2nd Line Support Analyst for SIMS Support."
"Joskos experience and training is one of the best things I've done so far. I was that lucky and and started to improve my experience from day ONE and I enjoy it to the last bit. Since July and August I have been to schools imaging laptops and desktop PC's, setting up smart-boards, calibrating projectors and installing WiFi access points. Also I have learned more about Windows server 2008 R2, active directory and setup. So huge thank you to Joskos team that helps me a lot to get things done and prepare for my future exams."
Thanks to Joskos Training I have secured my 1st IT job after just 4 months, 2 of which were doing work experience on the Joskos IT support desk and in schools as a 1st line support engineer.
My name is Jana and thanks to Joskos I now work at a Teddington School as an IT support engineer. It is a great school and people are friendly and caring. I really enjoy working here and I see many talented kids and professional staff.
Many thanks for the latest opportunity and ongoing one at the British Academy. I am learning something new each day and the team has been extremely helpful in explaining concepts i dont understand.
I love Joskos because it helped me get to where I am now – I own an IT support firm in Uganda.

"...I'm 18 years of age and am now working for a company which turns over $4 Billion. I got to where I am now with no experience..."
"I’ve always been interested in IT and technology but have never done anything about it so I decided to go for it and change my career!"
My experience with Joskos has been an exceptional one! Coming from a business background, a career in IT is what I decided on - Service Management in particular.
"When I came to Joskos, I never imagined I would end up working in Miami in America two years later..."
"In the four years since I’ve left Joskos, the course has definitely paid for itself over and over..."
"The IT qualification from Joskos gave me the confidence to go for bigger and better things."
"I found the Joskos VLC (Virtual Learning Center) to be a really useful learning tool. There are a lot of facilities on there such as learning documents, E-books, and forums."
"The decision to join was one of the better decisions I have made in my life..."
"In Joskos, the staff were all so friendly that it made the decision to join Joskos very easy..."
"After studying the first 10-day module, I was offered a job with an IT company ACI plc where I’m now a director..."
"My training was flexible, which was useful as I was working and studied mostly in evening classes..."
"The training was clear and practical and as I do not have a background in IT I felt the training was designed for people with or without that background."
"Upon leaving college I applied for multiple IT positions in a variety of different sectors. After a couple of weeks of no responses I came across Joskos. I was instantly contacted by them and arranged a consultation to visit their training team. I signed up and I have only been impressed by their support, training and work experience opportunities that have been provided to me.
I would recommend Joskos Training to anyone who is serious about getting into IT. I'm so happy I chose them over a University!"
I just recently became permanently employed in an IT company in a role that Joskos has put me forward for. Joskos put me in touch with this IT Company for 8 weeks of work experience...
Without doing the work placement at Joskos, I would have struggled to find my first IT job, thanks a lot!
