    The school network is a resource for running the school and facilitates learning, it is not for learning how to run a network.

    There's no way that would work. However, there are solutions to give them access to 'a' network and command prompt within a safe environment. Not that there's any suggestion of that from your post.

    Panic (slightly) over

    Just had a word with the guru... turns out it's a program of study from a company called rising stars. and everything is done under emulation...

    but that wasnt mentioned when it was thrust into my hand and told to look at it.

    Just looked at the sample lesson the company has on line - and links to some of the resources are dead - and they want schools to pay a grand for that.
