    I'd be up for it... Though RM have a policy of only bidding for LA in which they have a solid presence as even they realise that they would struggle to do every school in the countries ICT services

    That's good.

    A good point but RM also talk to other bsf tenders so maybe that info feed back to them.

    So are you up for coming then Grommit being that you want BSF tender companies to listen to you...

    Russell
    I don't want the BSF Tender Companies to listen to me.. I want them to disappear..

    I want the BSF to realise that they are killing the Community of ICT Management in the Education Sector...

    Will Edugeek exist in 5 years time .. ?!?!? I doubt it..... as most of the members will either be doing a job in the private sector or be a Education Managed Service Company Drone that wont need the Edugeek Community to bounce ideas or questions off of..

    Basically there is no future Career in IT in the Education Sector.. The only jobs will be Technican Drones, Helpdesk Support Drone, 2nd Line Helpdesk Support Drones or maybe if you are very lucky a supervisors job at one of the Big Managed Services Companies....

    Gone are the 10's of Thousands Network Mangers Jobs in Schools.....

    @Grommit

    Would you prefer to have a company that employs the staff, pays the staff, trains the staff but gives the staff the freedom to provide facilities that the school needs, has the power to decide what is required based on consultation and willing to collaborate with people in similar positions in other schools?

    If so then go and tell them.

    As for EduGeek existing in 5 years time ... I would not want to predict the future for anything in IT but even if EduGeek isn't here there will be something else and a good number of members are likely to be around at similar sites.

    Don't forget that people in 'industry' use such sites as Experts Exchange, Windows IT Pro, Technet, various mailing lists, Usenet ... sites like this will always be around.

    Re: A Meeting

    I'd be interested from a different aspect. I have never worked in a RM based school, only ever heard people slag them off whether rightly or wrongly. I must admit the things i have heard i tend not to like the sound of but it would be nice to have some first hand knowledge/advice to make my own mind up.

    I like to see boths signs of the coin before making judgment but i do know a lot of staff who work in RM run LEA's and they are not happy but then again i know some staff who will never be happy.


    Keep me informed, i can't garentee 100% i can attend but i will give it soem thought when you get a location.

    @Russ..
    I'm in, not RM - not even Microsoft.

    But a chance to talk cannot be missed.
