    Erm... Congratulations?


    I think I'm going this year. I missed it last year, but our HT wants to take the IT Co-ordinator and myself. [He went last time and didn't stop talking about it.]

    I'll not be going this time. Attended 2011, and 2009, and personally I think it's a complete waste of time.

    OK so i did go to the RM technical seminars, and some share point training, but apart from that all i do is paperwork!! I need days out seeing equipment, not looking at it on web! Also get to use my food card thingy! always good!!

    although training is classed as work- so work, home, and tesco's is about al i go to.

    Hardware wise, yes.

    But considering that schools who buy from RM usually have RM support contracts too, contracts which only cover RM hardware, you either have an increased support cost to cover non-RM hardware or you need to fix all these things yourself.

    As you're reporting it to RM you obviously can't fix it [Or don't have the time to fix it], so you're going to have to get someone in. [Or get overtime.]


    It's swings and roundabouts.

    We have a contract with our local Tech Services Team that covers all our hardware and stuff with plugs, they even fix rm stuff-- costs less than you would think. They take away fix, bring back, tell us what the fault was, then i have a go at said teacher!!

    We have an RM contract plus an LEA one.

    The RM guys are quick but always respond by sending someone out, even if I just want advice on something.

    The LEA take a while and don't tell me what they did...

    So, for porpoises that are less intensive you're not a hermit?
