Kent BSF Wave 3: 11 schools and Northgate
Northgate has recently been appointed preffered bidder for the first parts of the Kent BSF contracts and our school will be one of the first to change over. I'm interested to know what system they have put in place in the past in schools with regard to servers, desktops, student and staff laptops etc....
It appears from my Googling that in the past they have largely sub-contracted to RM but they were bidding against RM for the Kent contract so there seems to be a conflict there. I'm also obviously interested in what they do about existing staff and what areas of ICT support they leave to the school to sort out themselves.
I would be interested in any on or off the record comments and can be emailed directly via firstname.lastname@example.org if you would your comments not to be on a public forum.
