I can see that most posts favour Primaries!
Personally I'd rather do a job I enjoy - another Primary part-time job's come up! - than a mundane one.
You know what, I think I am going to be a rebel and tell the uni placement team to stuff it! :D I will speak to my headmistress tomorrow about feeder schools and :hail: please please since she doesn't want me to go will she be my line manager. Although we do have an ICT coordinator so he might get landed with it.
yeah, I guess I wouldn't mind going somewhere where they will actually let you do something usefull but checking equipment registers and setting up stuff is not exactly my dream job. Funnily enough, the new job is a Primary right next door to the boring secondary above, you get to run the network and get paid almost double (in proportion to the hours).
Anyway, some of my uni mates have gone on to set up their own business, so who's going be their line manager then? I feel a fight coming on!!!
They'll probably think - not her again!!! I once got excluded from a lecture for being slightly late - they had a dogsbody on a door. I played merry hell and told the head of computing exactly what I thought of their support for mature students who have to arrange childcare etc. etc. He actually appologized - usual phrases "students first but on this occasion we failed..blah blah". The had reps from industry doing a presentation so wanted to create a good impression, stuff the students!!!
Anyway, thanks for your comments and wish me luck!!!
