    Isn't it a shame this whole thread exists. Why take a really good idea, fixing/rebuilding all secondary schools, and force the people involved to have to choose their IT aliances to get it. Seperate out the projects, have a building programme that looks at buildings, and then have an IT programme that asseses and upgrades failing IT departments/systems/approaches. I have never been checked on what I do in school by any authority other than school managers, and although I am the expert employed to manage the IT direction of the school, it would be good to know that someone is checking on me and others, stopping schools getting into the IT mess that BSF is trying to fix on the back of the buildings projects in the first place.

    That is all.

    I currently work in one of the new academys in hull and I found out just before the christmas holidays I would most likely be tupeing to RM which will be happening this year. Only found out when a letter droped through the door asking me to attend a meeting about it.

    so at the moment a little bit worryed about it all.

    Is there anyone out there who has experience of BSF under the VT Group.
    I am paticularly interested in onsite ICT staff and the role of the Network Manager.

    Thanks

    Apparently the first part of their selection process is a spelling test

    Funnily enough our authority has started doing exactly that - auditing ICT in all schools. We (i.e the NM,me!) were audited not long ago and it was a) good to see were doing the right thing in their eyes and b) useful to compare notes with the other schools audit results.

    A few improvements points gave me a something to work on as well.

    Sadly though, this process has started now, and as BSF starts next year it probably negates the point of it.

    This has recently started in our LEA and I suspect it is because of BSF that they are doing it, i.e getting all the schools up to scratch before BSF comes in.

    I've heard a rumour that Morgan Sindall are on the verge of pulling out of the Hull BSF as they can't agree contractual terms with Hull CC - anyone else heard anything?

    Financial Close is certainly overdue.
