    In which case, I would go for more generic questions about the role/position of support staff in general (listening out for words like the hideous "non-teaching staff" and whether they use "staff" to mean all employees or just teachers). Another useful one would be to find out if they would support you in refusing to do something a colleague has asked of you because a) it is illegal or b) it would compromise security or network management.

    I have issues with the reliance on IWBs as the fix for everything, so this would be a slightly loaded question, designed to see whether they understand that technology needs to support the learning. Too often initiatives to encourage the use of technology can be about shoehorning using $latest_new_toy (VLEs, IWBs etc) into teaching rather than their use being pedagogy led.

    Amen!!
