    The applications were handled by an agency so I don't know anymore I'm afraid. If I get chance to I will ask early next week.

    When they took out the ad with the agency, it was for a 60 day ad and the college (quite rightly) feels it would be inappropriate to do anything before this time has elapsed. This was mid august, so I expect that it will be mid October before anything further appears.

    Not heard anything yet, but can ask again. Have you tried getting in touch directly with the school?

    As the MCSE qualification in itself is likened to the equivilent of a masters degree then I think the remuneration package is not quite the same as would be for a teacher with the equivilent qualifications.

    That said it is not to be sniffed at in these uncertain times and it is a permanant position after the initial 6 months trial period has been successfully completed.

    I am sure that if they were after a Head of Science then I would presume that the candidate would require at least a masters in science before being given an interview.

    Slightly OT but there is a concerted move in education circles to make raise the 'gold standard' for teachers to a Master's Degree (Masters in Learning and Teaching) and this will be part of on the job professional development ... likely to be so that you need it to pass threshold or be accepted onto NPQH.

    The increase in the number of people going to Uni means that to get the better jobs you have to have extra qualifications. How these get mapped to equivalents to vocational / professional qualifications I am not sure ... but most of the top end qualifications or things like chartered status rely on examples of relevant experience.

    And so we get back to the conversation about whether CITP status from BCS is worth it. In this case I would say it is.

    Hot off the press!!!!

    Applicants have been shortlisted and will be contacted soon for verification on qualifications, and interview dates will be arranged shortly after that.

    Workload of staff involved appears to have been a delaying factor here so apologies all round.

    When I here more I will pass it on.

    Best of luck to all who applied.

    A MCSE equivalent to a Masters degree? I have to disagree there. I did some research on professional certifications and where they sat on the NQF back a couple of years ago. And while some Masters/Bachelor programs will accept the MCSE as part of their program, the MCSE in general maps to level 4 (post 2006 ratification).

    In IT the only professional credential that I know of that maps to Masters level would be the CITP from the BCS. Other qualifications would include the NVQ 5 (as the NVQ program uses the pre-2006 NQF) and the MCGI from City & Guilds. Other qualifications would include the CCIE from Cisco and the MCA from Microsoft, however I have not found thing that states it so.
