I'm not sure if this an appropriate question for this forum, but thought I'd chance it.

I have been working in administration immediately after high school, choosing not to apply for university. However, I have now progresssed as far as I can within my current job. I'm planning to take an HNC or HND via open university and continue working until its complete and I can get a new job.

However, I am very much at a loss as to which HNCs or HNDs actually lead to jobs. I don't want to study for academia's sake, but to make a little more money than I have. I am also not interested in making a lot of money or having a big career, £14-16 an hour (UK) would be fine by me. Obviously something connected to my administrative experiences would look better on CV, but I'm wondering which kinds of HNC/HND are actually in demand from employers?

(I have a friend who did a very interesting degree in history which focused on archeology, but it seems that jobs there are scarce and she ended up in a completely different job. I don't want to 'waste' any learning time on a dead end. I hope that makes sense.)

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Do business or nursing. In that order.
