We are currently arranging a meeting with RM that we will invite small group of members to which we can discuss how people view RM and BSF and to get some dialogue between people.
Yes it will be open to pro and anti rm members and anything in between.
We are currently looking at how many members we can invite and if we get peoples travel expenses paid.
Is this something people would be interested in.
I'm possibly up for it, we are an RM school here.
You don't have to an RM school as want to look at peoples views of company and BSF.
It may help if there are some members who used to be RM schools who have moved away so that they can openly talk about the benefits of being independant whilst RM schools can do there bit.
I would be interested, but depends on the distance, for a person that doesn't drive in kent, it may be a little bit costly.
I would personally like to see what RM are offering as i work on a vanilla network here.
Isn't this like going to the enemy and telling them what faults they have thus making them stronger ?
What I would like..... is to have each County/ Borough have an ICT Education Guru (or a few) to look after and advise the Network Managers of the Schools and to develop a strong but Independant IT Network Structure..
So each School will have its IT manager Controlling the Technicians.. but have discussions with the Gurus on Education IT Developments and Best Practice
RM or any Managed Service Providor doesn't fit into this picture...
Well said that manOriginally Posted by Grommit
The problem with this strategy is that nothing is enforced, currently Becta advise LA's and LA's advise schools (sometimes). The problem is that if a rougue or under pressured NM is forced to bodge things then none of the standards are enforced. With BSF standards produced by Becta are enforced by contracts and if the contractor doesn't deliver eg cabling up to TIA/EIA etc standards then they get fined. I do think it can be done the way you sugest but only if it is enforced (eg by ofsted?)
That makes 2 of us here in kent who don't driveOriginally Posted by BKGarry
