One of the most prolific users of Learndirect ever has to be 43 year old Clyde Lowe who recently completed his 28th course!
His dedication and commitment to learning has led him from the most basic of computer courses for beginners to advanced software programmes.
Considering he had never touched a computer when he first walked into The College of North East Londons Learndirect centre in January 2002 makes his achievement all the more remarkable.
Clyde, of Lordship Lane, Tottenham, has also completed the first year of his European Computer Driving Licence at CONEL.
He has just been nominated the centres Learner of the Month and said winning the award made me really happy. The award won him some Learndirect accessories and his name and picture on the wall of the centre.
He explained how he had been studying numeracy at the college when someone told him about free Learndirect courses and he decided to investigate.
I liked what I saw and signed up. I enjoy coming here very much. The tutors are very helpful and make you feel good about yourself and what you are doing. Theres a nice mix of people in here as well people my age and over.
Clyde says he would like to get a job related to technology but it wont stop him learning. I will probably still come here to do courses. You can never learn too much!
