    It also says that Bill has 5 years experience in independent IT support, so I guess that means he got the job you applied for!

    If it's the guy I remember, he came from a comprehensive down Dover/Folkestone way somewhere.

    I got this too and was pretty impressed. I liked the idea of putting Tips on the bottom of each page. If you want to register for the magazine it seems like you can just email register@independentict.com with your name, postion, email address, school name and address.

    Ooh! The HT has just given me a copy. It seems it was mailed to HTs...

    She wasn't dreadfully impressed: called it one big ad for Kent College, Tonbridge & Sevenoaks... I'll read it before I give my opinion!

    Maybe it is (although any case study can be useful), but since it is produced by Kent College and sent out free of charge, is it unreasonable that use it for sef-promotion?

    I agree... I think the HT is jealoius because KC prep is a rival to us (and A LOT bigger!)

    Got mine this morning, sat and read cover to cover. Was very impressed by the content yes can seem like a bit of a ad for the colleges but when the info in the articles is relevant i don't mind.

    Hi everyone,

    A colleague has pointed out this thread to me so thank you David and others for the positive feedback!

    Independent ICT is my magazine that I have sent free to all ICT managers in Independent schools in England. If you have not got a copy or are not an independent school I have now uploaded it to my website so feel free to have a look - www.independentict.com/magazine.htm.

    Yes it is a bit Kent College biased for the first issue as that is my day job but hopefully as I get more articles from other schools this will change. I have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback and although there are forums like this one, sometimes its nice to kick back with a coffee and find out what others are up to in a magazine.

    I am not sure how much of it applies to state schools as despite what someone has said on this forum I have not worked in one ( there are many Kent Colleges! ) so cannot comment but you are all more than welcome to look if you have not received one. Hopefully you may find something of interest in it - please remember its free and my first effort!

    Regards,

    Bill

    A a damn good effort it is, too. When is the next issue out and what do you have planned for it?

    Thanks David

    The next issue should be out end of Jan for the spring term and will hopefully have articles on ITIL, Sharepoint, Assessments, MIS and a few others - just need to think of some more tips!

    Regards,

    Bill

    No it's the correct Kent College, but you obviously weren't the guy I remember from my interview day!

    Hello!

    PS I like it too

    was it a guy called Kevan Harding - he was the previous ICT Manager and he emigrated to Australia! He's probably on the beach as we speak!
