    Thinking about it... we have had some young geeks here who have found it very hard working at secondary schools, especially their own school.

    It's difficult to be staff when you are remembered as a pupil by everyone.

    You may find it easier to get started as a volunteer at Primary level. The networks are smaller, but the experience will be no less useful and you'll get an opportunity to learn to be old!

    Don't be afraid of contacting the independent schools either

    Re: Job Wanted In ICT

    I can confirm what elsiegee40 has just said having been a volunteer techie in my own school whilst in VI form. It's a very good way to learn but you do get taken advantage of if you're not careful about saying "NO" from time to time.

    Have you tried the job search on the job centre website. Also contacting your local LEA might prove helpful in finding out whether there's any jobs at local schools etc.

    Good luck!

    I work at my old secondary school now and started at the age of 17. I left in June 2003 and started work July 2005. It was a bit weird at first as some of teachers i have known for over 10 years as they are friends of the family. Others were a bit unsure to start of with but once you fix a few problems and save their asses a few times they soon respect you like any other member of staff.

    I started as junior ICT tech part time and am now full time and have run the network for the past year since my old NM left and they replaced him with another technician.

    They paid for the vast majority of my wages when i started by getting 3 of the feeder primarys to pay 2-4k each a year depending on size for me to go there half a day a week, and then they basically had a free technician for three and a half days a week!!! You could suggest that if you wanted??

    Although i would say the hardest thing about working in your old school is the kids as most them will remember you and so will kick up a bit of a fuss and refuse to call you sir. This was funny for me as my brother was in yr11 when i started so he had to call to me sir

    Hope that helps.
