A Techy gets "inside" the BSF process - are you interested?
I'm a senior ICT techie at a fairly large secondary school that have just started the process of planning BSF.
I have been asked to be a member of the "Transformational Team" - a small group of people responsible for drawing up the core values the BSF. (the first phase of the process)
I was considering starting up a blog to detail for you guys what I am going through and even uploading copies of the guidance notes etc so you can see exactly what I'm are given to work with (with particular interest given to the whole managed service situation of course)
The simple question is.....are you interested?

I am, BSF does not affect me being in a different country and all but it would be interesting to see the structure and organisation that is involved in the project.

If you feel you have the time and energy to devote to this then please do keep us informed.

Also if you are allowed as we wouldn't want you to get fired over it...
But if are and have time then yes please..

Yes please - would certainly make interesting reading. Though as Russ says, you might want to do your best to preserve your anonymity.

Perhaps EduGeek could help in that regard. Maybe hosting the blog?

Most certainly be interested :-)

I'd also appreciate it, while I'm not currently in the state sector it'd be good to know what I might be going into a few years down the line.

Yes, we are currently due for a BSF rebuild 2011/2012 a bit away but would like to hear what is going on first hand.

I would be very interested indeed.
We are due to go through the process around that time also, which county are you in?

I would also be very interested.. [-:

I'm in Worcestershire, in the Wyre Forest LEA.
I dont mind where I do the blog - here is good if the admins could sort something out??
I will have a quiet word about confidentiality to one of the SLT as indeed I dont wanna lose my job over it.
In terms of staying anonymous... I dont know that I'm too worried about that, my aim is not to go on a mission to destroy the evil of managed services but try to explain the procedures and meetings we go through. I also wont let it become "I cant believe Mr X is so stupid and wants to do this....." . From having a quick look around it doesnt seem that anyone from inside the ICT team has been a part of the BSF process before so its an opportunity to see what really happens (for all of us!)
I really wouldnt want the blog to be a one-way street. I've only been working for schools since last april so I'm really quite new to it. I kinda hoped you guys could provide some guidance and suggestions on what should be considered at various stages and perhaps point towards bits we/I may not have considered. I've only got one shot at this and from the one meeting I have had, the SfC (Strategy for Change) document we will be starting to construct very soon (next couple of weeks) will have a big influence on the final spec of the managed services (should we get them )

Yes please It would be really good to get some insight. We've seen an "SLT" blog which was a really interesting read, so an ICT Technical blog will be invaluable!

I've been folowing Deaks thread (Kent BSF Wave 3: 11 schools and Northgate) about Kent BSF with interest... a blog/thread from you would also be interesting

If I was you I would host it on my own blog where it cannot be "moderated" by anyone involved with the running of Edugeek - some of whom have a vested interest in the BSF programme.
