    So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehn, Adieu...

    ...my final day has arrived
    and at 12:23 my time will be up

    i don't envy any of you guys & gals(jewellery, jewellery, jewellery!);-)
    who're staying in the education sector, it looks as if its gonna be
    an interesting couple of years ahead and i'm glad TBH that i'm getting out

    ok, so going to work in the NHS isn't gonna be any easier
    but it'll be nice to work with adults again

    so this is it
    i'm off
    i am an ex-schools it technician

    no he's not
    he's just resting


    no
    seriously i'm leaving
    get off me

    no
    you cannot leave
    come back
    come baaaaaaaack


    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh!

    Bye - have a nice time!
    You are allowed to stay around, like Midget does, and one or two others.
    I have a friend who is an IT tech in the NHS and from the stories he tells, it is very similar to education - oh, except the consultants are gods!

    Have fun, but I’m sure doctors/surgeons are going to be more anal with the
    "I'm a qualified professional and save lives! You're effectively killing people by not fixing my computer!!"
    At least I can hope that’s how your life will be now you're out of education :P



    Oh... and good luck

    Good luck with the NHS, just remember to keep posting/blogging about life without teachers and pupils.

    been here 8 years now..heh. We've pretty much lost all the original staff now. Most ran away scared. Last big exodus/change was..erm..2005ish. So, most of it was in a 5 year period. It's reckoned there may be another not far away..I'm watching with interest (and a cuppa and biscuit).

    What happens, happens..it's an interesting ride, and there's no point in getting off just in case it gets a bit hairy.. That's always been my outlook when advised to "get out while you can"..by my HODs/Managers..."No, I believe I'll stay and see what shakes loose, but thankyou..and it was nice working with you".

    So far, I've been justified. Compared to 8 years previous, this is a dream. Besides, new facility in 2009..new kit to play with, new servers, our own ship instead of LEA controlled (thus far)..how can I resist? I'll be like a kid in a sweetie shop..
