Given the impending election and likely cuts in spending on leading labour programmes (such as BSF) would it be foolish to move from a well-paid job in a school which is long way off being BSF'd into a better paid private sector job in a company heavily focussed on BSF. Any thoughts welcome.
The Tories are likely to win the election, they are preparing an 'austerity budget' and have not commited to BSF and in fact say they want to 'get away from' that model.
the tories have also talked about protecting nhs and education spending in addition to talk of an emergency budget within a period of time after taking office....i've not heard the phrase 'austerity budget' used by anyone on the tory shadow bench.
OK, so in terms of the original question is it foolish move or not?
Depends on who you are going to.
Remember likes of RM, Ramesys and Northgate were around long time before BSF. Is suspect that they all have plans in a cut down version of the BSF programme. Also they have contracts which will run and will not be effected by any change of government.
Also the above 3 have fingers in other pies other than BSF. But on other hand if going for a firm that is major income is BSF then that is another matter.
So answer is depends on which firm.
