its the City & Guilds bits that i hate though, the long winded assignments.
ok, I see what you're getting at there, you want to fix computers, you don't want to write essays on how you fix computers.
the thing is those essays are going to teach you how to write documents.
it's one thing knowing your stuff, being able to implement an excahnge server (for example) with your eyes closed, but unless you can write the design so that it can be signed off by budget holders, you're never going to be able to start implementing solutions.
unless you can write documentation to hand over stuff that you've put in to support people, you're never going to be able to stop working on the environment that you finished building years ago.
all you've got to do is stick with it! the college course will be over soon, and whilst in your first job you may start at the bottom just supporting stuff that other people have put in, eventually you're going to have to talk to customers, or write designs, or reports or whatever, and having done all those assignments will help you in developing that skill that will differentiate you from the other people you work with that didn't have to do that stuff.
