I am a Senior Four leaver and would like to persue a diploma in Security Administration. Will I qualify to work in high organisations and government as a security administrator since am a security guard? Moris

Dear Moris,
It is good you want to improve your academic credentials by enrolling for a diploma.
Your ability to work in a high organisation or government is dependent on whether you meet the criteria and requirements of the role. With a Diploma you will be better placed to fit in a junior role that needs administrative knowledge.
Your experience as a security guard will only be of value if you are able to use it as learning platform. While you pursue your diploma, use your real-life experience as a security guard to confirm the theory that you are learning in class. I would present work challenges to your class mates and lecturers and see how the theory can be applied to provide you with workable solutions.
I would go a step further and test your class room solutions in your world of work.
It’s important to recognize that these interactions are helping you develop the skill of applying academic knowledge to the world of work.
The ability to do this is , will ensure that you are successful in achieving your goals.
