In London there are schemes for young people called Apprenticeships that help them get into the industry without the headache of technical experience but with the education needed to talk into an interview and later on education through work. So my level at 19 years old I had was maths, english, 2 weeks of codecademy (HTML, CS, JS), and an ecommerce project (PHP, JS, HTML, CSS, MySQL) I built with treehouse that I showed off in interviews with my computer. It took me 4 interviews to get my technique right for expressing desire, confidence, and problem solving.
