    Yes, we spent all the spare time talking 'geek' and generally being very friendly - it was very strange given we were going for a role at the place.

    I think that it improved the process though, we were kinda interviewing each other and thinking about the role - which in the end would benifit the interviewing school because the candidates have focused jointly on the roles needs.

    Self-interviewing candidates - now there is a concept for the 21st century

    Had the Interview - and now the wait for the result :P

    It was a good interview and I def like the way they do it. Looks like they want to take a rather unusal route to system security/monitoring - moving over to student responsibility & education of use.

    For instance opening YouTube up to site - Brave Lads I feel, but they seem happy to have the onus on the teachers to mind the matter.

    An excellent approach and one we would very much like our RBC to adopt.

    Very much how I prefer to do it too ... but it relies on each individual school taking ownership of the issue rather than relying on the technology to do the work. Sometimes always putting it back to the LA / RBC is a cop out ... and since KSA does not connect to EMBC anymore (political decision ... not a reflection on EMBC) then they have that sole responsibility.
