You're better off just blagging yourself into a low-level helpdesk kind of job, learning as much as you can in your spare time, and then just working your way up. IT qualifications are, as one lad pointed out, notoriously poor evidence of actual competency, especially given the diversity of applications. The people with the fun jobs in IT are just the people who arrived first and impressed the right people, or else they have a strong entrepreneurial background to sell themselves from. Without those advantages you are pretty limited.
I will warn you though. IT is in its own way a hellish career choice. I mean... Just imagine if all your colleagues were .gs users and 4chan posters, middle aged sci-fi nerds and incompetent diversity checkbox lasses/GAMER GURLS. I thought it would be great until I landed in it.
