    Probably because many have dropped CC4 and the techs only know how to deal with that. Last year almost all barnet schools were on it, now most are dropping it to save money

    We have never been RM, so it may be hard to understand but isnt retraining easier than finding another job?

    Yes, but it is cheaper for schools to drop current techs and get in new techs who don't need training. I know a guy who worked in Colindale and in Copthall and both were RM, he was split between the 2 schools, and he was let go because it was cheaper to let him go than renew his contract.

    Many places said they can learn at their own time and cost but many didn't and have since quit / fired for poor performance.

    Harsh. I can understand contractors being let go but not permies unless they are awful. The guys who quit need to understand that 90% of the IT world dont use RM so sooner or later they will need to learn how to use windows, AD, GP, exchange etc. I know it is unfair to have to learn this on your own time but that's the realitiy of most schools. My guys have to do it all the time because there never seems to be any budget when it comes time to train us. We are learning VMWare at the moment.
    Anyway back to the job, good luck for anyone applying but I think the pay is a little low compared to other schools currently advertising similar posts. Lovely area though, three pubs, big park nearby, lots of takeaways, and brent cross is a fifteen minute walk away.
