    All Change

    Well, it is all change in the Sheppard household over the next few months. My wife has a new job in Gosport in September (I'll drop the relevant member a PM shortly to give proper warning !!!!) and so we are moving down to the area.

    I am also moving on from Northants County Council ... No longer a publicly paid servant but still working in the education sector.

    It will come as no shock to some but I am joining Learning Possibilities (aka LP+) at the end of March to take on a sizeable chunk of the work of the HWB project for Wales. It is going to be an interesting challenge but a fun project.

    I will still be active on EG, and working on a number of other national (UK-wide) agendas aimed at eSafety, raising the profile of support staff in schools and DNA sequencing of the coconut to give it a chocolate shell (hmmmmm .... Choooocolate!)

    I'll give a longer thank you post to the various folk at the end of March but this is a general thanks to you all for making my time at the LA fun ....

    Sounds very exciting- how are you going to do Wales when you are in Gosport? Mind you, you won't actually live in Gosport,will you?

    That is a bit of a change!

    We'll certainly miss you round here fella, you've been an absolutely massive part of ICT in Northants and it's been fantastic having someone like yourself to put some of the most random (and from me no doubt infuriating!) questions to

    Hope it all goes well - as they say, a change can often do a lot of good to refresh the mind and look for new targets

    Best of luck to both you and your wife in your new ventures. Have you seen house prices in Hampshire? Lovely place to live though and handy for the ferries. My father was the Entertainment Officer on the Gosport ferry.
